These deep fried prawn and sesame balls are easy to make and excellent as a party snack. You can also make them and put them into a sauce!!
1 cup of shelled prawns
1 teaspoon of ginger juice
a tiny splash each of light soya sauce
a little salt to taste
white pepper to taste
1 teaspoon of egg white
1/2 teaspoon of cornstarch
a little chopped spring onion
sesame seeds as needed to coat the balls
oil for deep frying
Make sure the prawns after cleaned and washed are dry by patting with a kitchen towel. Put them into the food processor and pulse just once. Alternatively you can also chop them very fine. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Leave to chill for an hour in the fridge. Shape into balls with greased palms and roll in the sesame seeds. Heat oil for deep frying and deep fry the balls till golden brown. Serve with sweet chilli sauce!
NITU DIDI TIP: if you are finding the mixture too mushy to shape into balls you can add a bit more of cornstarch. You can also substitute this for white boneless fish instead of prawns. Press the sesame seeds into the balls firmly so they stick to the balls:
