KK Curled Prawn

Salam all,

First of all I would like to express my gratitute to Allah SWT for giving us this delicious food, reached at our door step through our generous friend, Norizan Md Diah.

Izan's brother came from Kota Kinabalu and brought some fresh prawns for her. Generously, she distributed the prawns to her friends. Alhamdulillah, I am lucky to be among her friend. Kota Kinabalu, Sabah is well known for its fresh sea food. Anyone flewn from KK will never missed to bring along the fresh sea food, especially prawns to the Peninsular. Not to worry about the packaging as the prawns are well packed, frozen for travelling.

I wonder what I should cook with these prawns. Some time ago when I have these large prawns, I try making the sweet and sour prawns, it tasted delicious but we could not actually enjoy the sweet and delicious taste of the prawn as it is covered with gravy. Therefore, this time, I planned just to fry the prawns. I chose to make a 'Coated Prawn'.

*Note: No time for decoration or the prawns will be swept into one's mouth

My batter:

1 cup of self raising flour for a fluffy texture
1 table spoon of olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
Just enough plain water

Whisk everything together in a bowl. The texture is not to be too thick nor too thin. Dip the prawns into the batter, make sure all areas of the prawn is coated, deep fry the prawn till golden brown.

*Note: De-shell and de-vein the prawns prior to dipping it into the batter and frying.

My kids LOVE it. They eat the prawns just like that without the accompanying rice.

*burp*.... Alhamdulillahillazi ath'a mani wasaqani waj'alni minal muslimin.....
