Then strain the vegetables, rinse in cold water and drain.
9. Put green onions, carrot, asparagus, beef strips on the skewers.
Make batter by mixing ½ cup flour, ½ cup water, and ½ teaspoon salt in a bowl.
10. On a heated non-stick pan drizzle some vegetable oil, dip each skewer into the batter and put it on the pan to cook controlling the heat so as not to burn the skewers.

To make Dipping Sauce:
13. In a cup mix 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon vinegar and ½ tablespoon chopped green onions.

14. Serve it as appetizers or a side dish along with the dipping sauce.
