I made this Crispy Prawn Fritters for tea time last Saturday. Both me and Dearie Suki loves the crispy prawn fritters that comes with the Rojak Buah. When I was in my 2nd pregnancy, I was craving for Rojak Buah. I used to get Dearie Suki go back to Kajang on every Sunday and buy the Rojak Buah from one of the Rojak man selling at the Tmn Bukit Mewah night market on Sunday.
This Rojak Taukeh used to sell his Rojak outside the Great Wall supermarket in Kajang. From a motorbike stall and now upgraded to a van. Personally I hate buying from him cos he always boost around while I am waiting for his Rojak. While making his Rojak he will start boosting that he is the Rojak King in Kajang, his Rojak is the best, his customers even come as far as Singapore and 'ta pau' more than 10 packets back to Singapore and worst still he will tell me, anyone open next to him sure 'chup lup' cos cannot compare with his Rojak. Walaueh... I want to LOL when I heard this.
Why we like to buy from him cos we loves his crispy prawn fritters. We always add extra of the crispy fritters and a whole packet of Rojak will come out about RM8. Pretty expensive huh just for the crispy fritters.
Last Saturday I decided to give it a try to make the crispy fritters. I can't find any recipes from the net and finally I used the batter recipe for making a Pie Tee shells from Amy Beh. The recipe stated to use 100gm flour and 1 tbsp rice flour. Followed the recipe exactly and quite happy with the results and it is really crispy. But......
I am dissapointed cos it is only crispy on the 1st day. On the 2nd day the prawn fritters became soft although I stored it in an airtight container. Sigh :( Oohhh, can someone please enlighten me what is wrong with it why I can't get those sell at the Rojak stalls. Perhaps should I just changed the recipe the other way round, to use 100gm rice flour and 1 tbsp flour?
Crispy Prawn Fritters with Rojak Sauce as dippings. Whether it is crispy on the 1st day and soft on the 2nd day, me and Dearie Suki finished up everything . The crispy one we dip it with the Rojak sauce and the soft one we dip it with Lingam's chilli sauce.
I won't give up and I am going to try my 2nd attempt this Saturday with my own version of recipe. Hopefully it works.
