Cucur Jagung

Ingredients

2 Corn on the cobs, removed kernels
120 grams Peeled Prawns, diced
1 Medium Red Onion, diced
50 to 60 grams Chinese Chives, cut into 1 to 1/2 inches segments
2 Green Chilies, chopped
1 Large Egg
6 to 7 Tbsp (about 180 grams/1/2 can) Can Cream Corn
1 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
180 grams All-Purpose Flour
3/4 Cup Water

Vegetable Oil, for deep-frying
Sweet Chili Sauce
Cucumber


Method

Combine the corn kernels, onion, chives, chilies, prawns, flour, baking powder, egg, turmeric and salt into a mixing bowl. Add water and mix well, to make a fairly thick batter.

Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Spoon a heaped tablespoon of batter and gently drop it into the oil, and fry until golden brown in color. Drain fritters on paper towel. Cool for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting fritters into smaller pieces, and served warm with some cucumber and Sweet Chili sauce.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
