  1. Stir together the water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil and add the walnuts. Boil for 2 minutes, then drain and place walnuts on a baking tray to dry.
  2. Beat egg whites in a medium bowl until foamy. Stir in the glutinous rice flour until it has a pasty consistency. Heat the oil in a heavy deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Dip prawns into the batter and then fry in the hot oil until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen towels.
