Shrimp Tempura - IFC - Step by step

        This month, Shahzia of "Cutchi Kitchen", gave us the challenge from "Hokkaido Cuisine". There were so many recipes like Hokkaido milk bread, shiffon cake .. but shrimp tempura caught my eyes, as it was easy to make . One more reason, why I took this is , I don't have much shrimp recipes in my blog. So opted for this easy appetizer. Originally, this recipe is made with king prawns, since I couldn't get king Prawns from my grocery store, picked theses small shrimps. It tasted as good as king prawns, though the size was small.Prawns are dipped in batter, coated with bread crumbs and fried in oil.The spice level is bit low in this recipe, as the shrimps are served with spicy dip.
Serves                 :    2
Preparation time :    10 minutes
Cooking time      :    15 minutes

1.King prawns         -      10
2.Egg                       -       1
3.Flour                     -       1/2 cup
4.Pepper powder      -       1 tbsp
5.Ice water                -       2 to 3 tbsp
6.Salt                         -       to taste
7.Oil                          -       for frying
8.Bread crumbs         -       1/2 cup

* Wash the prawns, remove the skin ,but keep the tail intact. Take a sharp knife, slit in the middle of the prawn to make it look like a butterfly. As shown in the picture.

* Take a mixing bowl, add egg,salt and pepper. Beat it well. There should not be any lumps.
* Now add flour to the egg and mix it well.

 * Slowly add ice water to the mixture and form a smooth batter. Take a plate ,add the bread crumbs to it.


 * Take the devinded prawns and dip it in the batter first.

* Now coat the prawn with bread crumbs on both the sides.

 * Deep fry the shrimp in medium hot oil. Once they turn golden brown, strain the prawn.

Serve it with sweet chilli sauce. This can be made instantly, by mixing chilli sauce with honey.

* The prawns has to be cleaned very well.
* The batter should always be cold, If not keep the batter in fridge for few minutes.
* We can skip egg and add some corn flour, if we want.
*  If you don't have bread crumbs, then skip and fry directly, without coating it with bread crumbs.
