Prawn Fritters

Crispy Prawn Fritters
I was surprised these small, cheap white little prawns [Ringgit 4.80] can be transformed into such delicious prawn fritters.  If you can get them, no harm trying, it is worth it as a finger food for the kids or serve with rice.
These prawns are small but fleshy and sweet

600 gm small white prawns [see photo] - shelled
2 tsp salt - to taste
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp msg or chicken stock granules
5-6 tbsp flour for deep frying [unseasoned type]
2 eggs
enough water to mix into a running batter

Batter should be of this consistency

  • Put shelled prawns in a bowl.  Add in salt, pepper, msg or chicken stock granules, eggs and flour.  Mix well to combine and slowly add in water, little by little until you get a smooth batter but not too watery.  Must be able to stick to the prawns [see photo].
  • Heat oil in wok [enough to fry 4-5 pieces a time] on medium heat.  Scoop a spoonful of prawn batter in to oil to fry.  Fry 3-4 pieces at a time.  Turn over fritters when the bottom is firm and slightly golden.  Fry the other side till golden and crispy.  Drain on kitchen paper.
  • Continue to fry until batter is finish.  Add more oil if required.  Serve plain or with chilli sauce.
  • Can add 1/2 tsp chilli powder for spicy flavour 
  • Can get a big plate of fritters - more than 20 pieces
