Prawn Fritters and Sauce
Cooking for Love
Sift flour into a mixing bowl. Add pounded ingredients, red chili, Kuchai leaves and spring onions. Combine well with a whisk.
Toss in the prawns and coat evenly.
Use a hand mixer to incorporate all the ingredients together. Then gradually add water to the mixing bowl while still whisking, until viscous but still fairly stiff.
Add egg, mix to combine and then season with salt, white pepper, onion and garlic powder.
Fill a pot with oil about 4 inches deep & place on medium high heat or until it reaches 180°C. Neither too high that it burns the cucur nor too low that it turns soggy. We are going for crispy cucur.
Once oil is hot, roughly shape batter into small balls using 2 table spoons and carefully lower into oil. Keep going until batter is finished. Do not overcrowd the pot.
Place fried fritters on a plate lined with paper towel.
