Chinese Style Prawn Fritters 炸虾饼

This is one of the snack that I like to buy from those Chinese auntie who selling deep fried stuffs like fried banana, fried sweet potato & etc. It is similar to Malay's cucur udang. A thin batter swirl on a Chinese ladle, place few fresh prawns on top then deep fry it. It is best to enjoy by dipping into chili sauce.






Try to use this type of soft shell prawns called White prawns 白虾









I also recorded a video to show you how to fry this Chinese prawns fritter..


 
 
This prawn fritter is crispy while hot, if you prefer more crispy prawn fritter, then you have to make batter crepe thinner as possible..

Hi Sonia, this is my favourite afternoon snack, too. But I stopped having them when the stall operator leaves the cooking to his foreign aids. It's different and I felt very thirsty after consuming it. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'll try.
