About this recipe: This easy peasy recipe is a combination of sweet and spicy flavours, a favourite meal I had in Borneo. Using groundnut oil ensures your coconut-coated prawns come out deliciously crispy. Serve with steamed rice and soy sauce.


Serves: 4 

  • groundnut oil for frying
  • seasoned plain flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • desiccated coconut
  • 500g king prawns, peeled
  • fresh curry leaves
  • 1 red chilli, chopped (or to taste)

  4. Serve prawns on bed of steamed rice and sprinkle with fried curry leaves and fresh red chilli. Serve with steamed rice and light soy sauce.
