Gently mix the contents of the package to ensure all the prawns are completely coated with batter.
Deep-fry On The Hob (Time: 3-4 minutes)
Place a deep-frying pan on medium heat. Add enough oil to completely submerge the pieces. Heat oil to 180℃. It shouldn't be so hot that the oil starts to smoke, nor too cool or the prawns will just soak up all the oil. To test, slide a prawn in the oil and if it sizzles then you should be on the right track.
Once the oil is hot enough, slide in the prawns one by one gently into the oil. Make sure you don’t drop them in as it may make the oil splatter onto your hand. Gently stir the prawns in the oil and turn them over occasionally till you get a golden brown colour on all sides.
Should take you approximately 3-4 minutes. If you feel like it isn't cooked through, fry for another minute. Remove carefully onto a paper towel with a slotted spoon.
Let the Zesty Prawn Pakodas rest for a few minutes once cooked.
