Prawn Fritters

Randal request to buy prawns and cook it for dinner when we were at the market the other day. Didn't decide how to cook the prawn till last minute, so never marinate the prawns earlier. Use the batter that I learn from a workshop a few weeks ago to cook this dish. The batter was still crispy even when the dish is cold.

500g prawn

150g flour
2tbsp tapioca starch
½ tsp baking powder
250ml water

1tsp salt
1tsp sugar
Dash of pepper

1.Wash and remove shell of prawn leave the tail intact, devein the prawn, rinse and pat dry with kitchen towel.

2.For the batter: Add all dry ingredient into bowl, then pour in water bit by bit to avoid lumps. Add in seasoning and mix well.

3.Heat up oil in wok. Test the oil temperature by dropping a bit of batter in it, if batter floats very fast then its ready to fry the prawn.Dip the prawn in the batter and place prawn into oil and deep fry it till it bit brown. Dish and drain.
