Weekend Meal of Deep Fried Prawns with Flour – Recipe

Everyone in my family loves deep fried prawns with flour. I have some prawn that I bought last week in my fridge and it is time to clear it out before I go the wet market again this weekend. I like to use equal portion of corn flour, wheat flour and rice flour because this composition would stick well to the prawns and make the dish crispy! I made a deep cut through the top part of the shelled prawn and turned it around like what Chef Martin Yan did in one of his show. This resulted in a prawn with attractive looking shape....LOL! My family had a nice meal of Deep fried prawn with flour as one of the main dish for dinner.

Medium size Prawns, 600 gms, shelled with tail remain intact
Corn flour, Rice Flour and Wheat Flour, equal portion to make up half a rice bowl
Salt to taste
Pepper a dash
Vegetable oil for deep frying
A little water for the batter

Add water to the flour combination to make a batter. Add in salt and pepper. Put the prawns in the batter and deep fry them in hot oil. Remove and drain away excess oil when the flour that coats the prawn turned golden brown. Serve while it is still hot and crispy! It tastes good with chilly sauce.

Have you tried the MLF flour? Mum used to use that type of flour to fried prawns and bananas. The skin will be crispy too.
