Salted Duck Egg Fried Prawns

The rich and creamy salted duck egg yolks are often used to enhance the flavor of vegetables, meat, and seafood. This is a scrumptious Salted Duck Egg Prawns recipe. The prawns are coated with egg white and corn flour and deep-fried until light golden. They are then tossed together with a delicious sauce, made with butter, garlic, chilies, salted duck egg yolks, and plenty of fresh curry leaves.

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.
