DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together in a bowl the flour, corn starch, egg, garlic, water, fish sauce and pepper. Mix it very well and make sure it’s free from lumps and set aside.
  • Wash and peel the sweet potato and carrots then grate it but in you do not have a grater, slice thinly as you can. Then slice the green onions.
  • Add the sweet potato, green onions, carrots and shrimp into the batter mixture and mix well.
  • In a frying pan, heat oil just enough to deep fry 2 fritters at a time. Using a slotted spoon, scoop Vege-shrimp batter allowing excess batter to drip off and place in a pan like mini pancakes, frying each side until crispy and lightly brown.
  • Once cooked, drain each Ukoy fritters on a paper towel to get rid excess oil.
  • Prepare the vinegar dip by mixing the last 7 ingredients and mix well, transfer in small bowl and serve warm.
