    Here's a recipe for crispy battered prawns topped with sugar coated walnuts, Hong Kong style. A great dish for a Chinese dinner.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 1 cup (250ml) water
    • 2/3 cup (150g) white sugar
    • 1/2 cup walnuts
    • 4 egg whites
    • 2/3 cup mochiko (rice flour)
    • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

    • 1 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
    • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Stir together the water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and add the walnuts. Boil for 2 minutes then drain and place walnuts on a baking tray to dry.
    2. Whip egg whites in a medium bowl until foamy. Stir in the mochiko until it has a pasty consistency. Heat the oil in a heavy deep frypan over medium-high heat. Dip prawns into the mochiko batter and then fry in the hot oil until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
    3. In a medium serving bowl stir together the mayonnaise, honey and sweetened condensed milk. Add prawns and toss to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle the candied walnuts on top and serve.
