Shrimp and Beansprout Fritters
(Bakwan)

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup flour
  • tsp. baking soda
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 150 ml water
  • 1 cup beansprouts
  • 1 cup small shrimps, peeled
  • vegetable oil
Instructions:
  • Mix the flour with the baking soda and add the beaten eggs.  Stir continuously while adding water bit by bit, so that the flour will not be lumpy.  Add the salt, pepper, beansprouts and shrimps.
  • Heat the oil in a wok or a deep-fryer.  Take a soup laddle and plunge it into the hot oil for a second.   Remove and fill it with the batter and make sure the batter has a few shrimps in it.  Dip the ladle in the hot oil and let it stay there until the fritter floats free.  Continue frying until fritters are golden brown.

Make 10 servings.
