Prawn Fritters With Vegetables

When night falls, I have many thoughts in my mind but when I'm sitting in front of the computer, my mind goes blank.  Blogging definitely needs inspiration to keep the entry interesting.  But today, my brain needs some rest.  I've been sleeping for 4 hours daily for the past 2 months as there are simply too many chores.  No, my house is not in tip top condition but the daily marketing, cooking, washing, cleaning, laundry is enough to exhaust me.  And yes, DH is overseas again, I think I only get to see him for a week or two in a month.  With DH away, I'm taking over his chores and I'm completely exhausted by 11pm.  And when I lie on the bed at 1am - 2am (alright, I skived, I did catch some movies on cable/surf the net for some ME TIME), my brain just can't stop working, thinking of the many events that happened and what's going to happen/prepare the next day.  Then , I'm in the state of insomnia again, almost every night.  I do not know what time I fall asleep but I will be awaken by DD3 for feed at least once and by 7am, the whole family is awake.

I initially thought this will be a short and quick entry but it took me almost 2 hours to complete.  Gosh, better stop now and get my butt moving, need to walk the dog.

Prawn Fritters With Vegetable Recipe
Recipe by Anncoo

100g prawns
1 onion - shredded (I used small onions)
1 small Carrot - grated or cut to thin match sticks
some finely cut spring onion or coriander leaves
Some salt and pepper

For the Batter
1 Egg yolk with enough water to make 150ml
3/4 cup Plain flour
1 1/2 tbsp Rice flour


    1. Remove shell and vein from prawns then cut to cubes not too small. Season with some pepper and salt.
    2. Combine the batter ingredients together in a measuring cup and blend into a smooth texture paste.
    3. Add enough oil (its usually sunflower/corn oil in my pantry) for shallow frying with two drops of sesame oil in wok.
    1.  In a medium bowl add prawn cubes, grated carrot, shredded onions and spring onion together.
    1. Then add about 2-3 tbsp of batter (not too thick) into the prawn mixture.
    2. Drop the coated prawn mixture in small portion into hot oil gently with a fork and spoon and shallow fry till golden brown. Dish up and drain oil well.
    3. Serve with mayonnaise or dipping sauce.

    I totally agree with you, the only time i can sit on the computer table is when everyone is sleeping. That's explain why i look so hagger and got thick pandan eyes. My hubby doesn't like to do housework and it's a must to cook three dishes and a soup per day. It's so tiring. :( How i wish i coulg get to eat the prawn fritters with veg.

    Due to health problem, my DH cannot take seafood and less chicken.So i never post any food recipes in my blog.
