This is my all time favourite Malaysian dish, it is simple and easy to make and kids loved them, and so do adults apparently, during a beer session ;)
For as long as I can remember, whenever I feel sick or lack the appetite for anything else, this cucur udang always brings me to the family table, which kid doesn't like crispy prawn fritters with Maggi Chilli sauce?
I am not exactly sure what my mum puts in them... magic, I think ;) but prawn fritters makes me happy!!
So tonite I am going to reconstruct from memory the taste of her prawn fritters....Lord help me... I am hopeless with measurement..everything is pretty much a guess...LOL
- A handful of finely chopped up prawn meat, devined, depending on how many you are feeding ;)
- Some eggs
- Some cornflour
- salt and pepper to taste
- a little water
- finely chopped chillies
- herbs, I used finely chopped coriander...for taste and colour ;)
- a teaspoons of curry powder
- Mum uses scallions aka spring onions, if you haven't got these, use shallots, they smell nicer.
