Crispy prawn fritters 香脆炸虾 (1)

When we were young, one of our favourite was this Crispy Fried Prawn Fritters 香脆炸虾.  My mom does it really well but now she is so old, she can't recall how she done it in the past.

Thus when I saw a member posted this recipe, I was eager to make for my family. 

I hardly deep fried food these days as my kids are always on a diet due to competition.

Since now competition days are still many months away, this will be the best time to have it for dinner.

Findings:  I wasn't able to coat the prawns until it puff when deep fried.  I shall reduce the water to 110g next round to make a thicker batter.

Overall, it is crispy and must eat hot.
