250ml (1 cup) small prawns, heads and tails removed
360g (3 cups) cake flour
30ml (2 tbsp) sugar
5ml (1 tsp) salt
2,5ml (½ tsp) bicarbonate of soda
250ml (1 cup) bean sprouts
2 leeks, cut into 2cm pieces
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 red chilli, seeded and thinly sliced
125ml (½ cup) corn kernels
250ml (1 cup) water
Oil, for deep-frying
1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except for the oil. Mix thoroughly until well combined.
2. If the mixture is too thick to stir, add a little water. It should be the right consistency to drop spoonfuls into a pan of hot oil for frying.
3. Heat the oil in a pan and drop in spoonfuls of the mixture, flattening them slightly with a fork to form fritters. Deep-fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towel.
4. Serve hot with sauce of your choice.
