Early in the morning today, I went to the small market near my house and was delighted to see tiny shrimps being sold at one of stall. I bought half a kg ($3.50).
So today’s menu is Assam Fish, Tempeh in soya sauce and tiny shrimp fritters.
Here is the recipe for the tiny shrimp fritters if you like to try. Very simple to do it. The recipe was shared by a friend and I just tweak it a bit to suit my palate.
Tiny Shrimp Fritters (Udang geragau goreng tepung)
1 cup of tiny shrimp – wash
Using a blender, blend 4 birds-eye red chillies or 2 red chillies, 4 cloves garlic and 1 onion.
2 stalk of coriander leaves – chop fine
Enough plain flour together with 1 tbsp of rice flour (the flour have to estimate till you get the right consistency
Salt to taste
A dash or two of ground pepper
A bit of water
Oil for deep frying.
Add and mix all ingredients together till you get the right consistency (neither too watery nor thick). Using a big spoon, scoop and pour into a hot frying pan (the oil enough for deep frying). Fry till golden brown. Serve hot.
