Prawn Fritters or Cucur Udang

Prawn Fritters... they are so yum to have in the afternoon with kopi O (Malaysian local coffee..)... my mum would serve the prawn fritters with peanut sauce (just like satay sauce)... Prawn fritters sold in the food stall has lost its 'identity' over the years.... there are less prawns used, more flour....



  • 2 cups of Plain flour
  • 400g fresh prawns - roughly chopped
  • 30 cooked prawns - de-vein and shelled
  • 1/2 cup of fresh chives - chopped
  • 2 handful of beansprout
  • 1 teaspoon of tumeric powder
  • salt
  • Sweet Chilli sauce to serve
Mix everything in a mixing bowl... add water adequately to make a smooth batter. Shallow fry in a large frying pan using canola oil. Drop in 2 serving spoonful of the batter into the hot frying pan... top with the cooked prawn. Turn the fritters over once the bottom side is cooked and golden brown in colour. Repeat with the other side... Serve with sweet chilli sauce.
