SPRING ROLL PRAWNS




Marinated jumbo prawns wrapped in spring roll wrappers and deep fried... Very simple and delicious treat for sea food lovers.. I had eaten these in a sea food restaurant in Houston and liked them a lot. I gave it a try making them at home and they tasted exactly the same..Those of you who love prawns are surely going to like them.


Ingredients:
Jumbo prawns  .... 4  ( or as needed)
Garlic paste .... 1 tsp
Soya sauce .... 1 tbsp
Chilli sauce .... 1/4 tsp (add more if you like)
Spring roll wrappers  .. Cut into 3 inch wide strips 
(I bought the ready wrappers from the store. See the recipe  HERE  for home made ones)
Oil ... to fry

For the paste:
Flour / maida .... 2 tbsps
Water ............ 1/2 cup
Dilute the maida with water and cook it in a pan whisking all the time to avoid lumps until it is thick. 


Method:
1. Clean the prawns and leave the tails intact. 
2. Marinate them with soya, chilli sauce and garlic paste.( at least for 1 hour )
3. Drain the liquid out completely. 
4. Take a strip of 3 inch wide and wrap it around the prawn sealing it with the maida  paste.
5. Heat oil and deep fry the prawn spring rolls to a golden colour until crisp on medium flame first and reducing it to low so that the prawns get cooked.
Serve hot with chilli sauce
