Salted Egg Prawns

Howdy folks!

Here’s a recipe I’ve been wanting to share with you for a while, because it’s yummy, tasty and not too difficult to make.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need-

FOR THE BATTER

Plain flour (approx 1.5 cups)

Corn flour (approx 2/3 cup)

A little water

One egg white

A tsp of salt

(Disclaimer: this are loosely put together estimations, I use the agak-agak method for this recipe.)

THE GOLDEN TO-DIE-FOR MIXTURE

7 salted duck egg yolks (steamed for about 5 minutes, or if you’re lazy like me, skip this part)

A few tablespoons of evaporated milk (I omit this sometimes and use more butter instead.)

A few tablespoons of butter

Curry leaves

A tinge of curry powder (optional – to taste)

Sugar to taste

Salt (if needed, to taste)

METHOD

  1. Mix the flours for the batter, add in some water slowly and keep stirring until it’s smooth and gooey. Add in the egg white and mix again.
  2. Dip the prawn in the batter and deep fry them.
  3. Remove from oil and drain.
  4. Once the prawns have all been fried, remove most of the oil, leaving only about a tablespoonful.
  5. Melt the butter in the pan. Throw in curry leaves when butter has melted.
  6. Add in the salted egg yolks. (Pre-steaming the egg yolks help them dissolve and foam faster, but sometimes i just dunk the uncooked egg yolks into the wok and break them into pieces with my spatula).
  7. Add in evaporated milk, if you’re using it.
  8. Season with some curry powder, sugar and salt.
  9. Once it’s all golden and foamy, throw in the prawn fritters and voila! You have a gourmet prawn dish. He he.
