  • Salt, pepper, sugar, coriander
  • 10 small fresh prawns

  • Make a puree for white onions, shallots, ginger, candleberry tree, salt, pepper, sugar, and coriander. I don’t use any blender to make this puree. I use the real cobek šŸ™‚

  1. Peel all sweet corns in a bowl in small pieces. Make sure there is no 1 big peel of corn to avoid small explosions during frying.
  2. Mix corn and seasoning
  3. Put egg on the corn and seasoning, mix
  4. Mix all flours to corn. Don’t give too much flour on the dough, just enough to incorporate everything
  5. Prepare pan and oil to fried
  6. Put 1 spoonful of the dough on the frying pan, cook it until it turns to gold.

Put the remaining dough in refrigerator, max 2 days only.
