Cucur Udang (Malay name for Prawn Fritters) 

Ingredients A:

300g plain flour, sifted with 2-1/2 tsp baking powder

3 eggs

250 ml (1 cup) water 

Ingredients B:

3 Tbsp dried prawns, soaked and pounded (or chopped)

120g prawn meat, diced

3 red chillies, chopped

3 green chillies, chopped

2 stalks green onions, chopped

1 big onion, chopped

1 tsp salt or to taste 

3 cups oil for deep-frying 


1. Mix A in one direction until a smooth batter is formed.

2. Add B and mix until well combined.

3. Heat up oil, spoon mixture into hot oil and fry with medium heat until golden brown and cooked. Dish and rain.

4. Serve hot as snack.

Optional – if you want to serve it with a dipping sauce, use a sweet chilli sauce. I recommend Lingham chilli sauce if you can find it in the Asian grocery store. If not, its available here

Note: Another version of this recipe uses additional ingredients like beansprouts, Chinese chives, cabbage, and carrots.
