Serves: 6 

  • 1 cup (125g) plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons corn flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup (250ml) water

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F).
  2. Whisk flour, corn flour, and salt in a large bowl. Make a depression in the center of the flour. Stir in the water and egg yolk. Mix just until moistened; batter will be lumpy. Stir in egg whites.
  3. One at a time, dip prawns into the batter to coat. Do not batter tails. Carefully place a few prawns at a time into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
