1. King prawns – 12 (Clean and wash them. Do not remove their tails)
Corn flour / starch – 2 tbsp
Chilly powder – 1 – 1.5 tsp (Adjust it according to your spice tolerance)
Salt – To taste
2. Spring onion – 1/2 – 3/4 cup, chopped
Pepper powder – 1/4 tsp
Salt – 1 pinch
1. Mix the corn flour, chilly powder and salt with a little water (around 1/4 cup or so) to make a thick batter. Taste-check for salt. Dip the prawns in this mixture and shallow/ deep fry in oil. Cook for 4 – 5 minutes on each side. Drain on to a paper towel.
2. In another pan, heat 1/4 – 1/2 tsp oil (use the left-over oil from step 1). Add the spring onions, a pinch of salt and pepper powder. Saute for 2 – 4 seconds or until the spring onion just wilts. Add in the fried prawns. Mix everything well and serve immediately.
Do not skip adding spring onions, it gives a very nice flavor to this preparation.
