Prawn and corn fritters

Serves: 20 - 30 fritters
Cooking Time: 30 mins


  • 250ml (1 cup) small prawns, heads
  • and tails removed
  • 360g (3 cups) cake flour
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) sugar
  • 5ml (1 tsp) salt
  • 2,5ml (½ tsp) bicarbonate of soda
  • 250ml (1 cup) bean sprouts
  • 2 leeks, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red chilli, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 125ml (½ cup) corn kernels
  • 250ml (1 cup) water
  • oil, for deep-frying



In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the oil. Mix thoroughly until well combined. If the mixture is too thick to stir, add a little water. It should be the right consistency to drop spoonfuls into a pan of hot oil for frying.


Heat the oil in a pan and drop in spoonfuls of the mixture, flattening them slightly with a fork to form fritters. Deep-fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towel.


Serve hot with sauce of your choice.
