  • Allow to stand for 10-15 minutes. Add prawns(if using) and mix again.
  • Pour a little oil in frying pan. Heat until hot.
  • Scoop tablespoonfuls of the paste into the hot oil to form pancakes. Best fry 3 or 4 at a time.
  • Turn pancakes when golden brown on the under side. Take care to keep them from sticking together. If they do stick separate with a knife when cooked.
