Schzewan Prawns

My family love chinese foods very much dunno whether coz we are living in Chinatown.If someone asks us wats your favourite cuisine my whole family will say chorusly chinese cuisine especially their seafoods,we love it very much. If we have family get together or any potluck party, i'll definitely make chinese dishes mostly chicken fried rice, even my friends will request me to bring some chinese foods than the South Indian foods whenever we plan for a party together. For me,chinese dishes are quite easier to make when compared to our Indian foods,obviously i'll make chinese dishes atleast once a week.

 Coming to this schzewan prawns, i want to make these droolworthy prawns since ever my better half asked me to make some at home. Somehow i kept this dish in my to do list since a long and finally this weekend i tried my hands in making this fantastic dish. It was a big hit at home, i prepared a quick red chilly paste for making this schzewan prawns.Store bought schzewan sauces are quite handy and definitely makes our life easier but somehow homemade sauces are best and very flavourful when compared to the store bought sauces.If you dont like prawns, you can replace prawns very well with any veggies or meats.Sending to Julie's Flavors of Cuisine-Chinese.



15nos King prawns (cleaned)
1no Carrot (sliced)
1no Egg white
3tbsps Tomato ketchup
2tbsos Red chily paste (recipe below)
1no Onion (diced)
3nos Dry red chilies
1tbsp Soya sauce
8nos Garlic cloves (finely chopped)
1tsp Ginger (finely chopped)
1/2tsp White pepper
1tsp Vinegar
Salt
2tbsp Corn flour (for frying)
1tsp Cornflour (gravy)
3tbsp Sesame oil
Oil for frying

Red chilly paste:
Soak 3-4 red chilies in warm water for half an hour and then grind to a fine paste along with 2 cloves of garlic and half a teaspoon of cumin seeds. This paste can be stored very well in fridge.

Make a batter with the egg white, corn flour, white pepper and salt.

Mix the cleaned prawns well to this batter and keep aside for about 15 minutes

Heat oil in a pan and fry the prawns till they are golden brown. This should not take more than 2 minutes.

Take out and drain the excess oil on an absorbent paper.

 Heat the oil, add in the ginger, garlic pieces, dry red chilies, and fry well.

 Next add in the onions,carrot pieces; red chili paste and ketchup,cook well for few minutes.

 Add in the soya sauce and some water,when it comes to a boil, add in the fried prawns and the spring onion greens and salt.

 Make a white sauce with one teaspoon of cornflour and water, add this to the gravy. Adding corn flour turns the gravy thick.

 Add in the vinegar and give a stir.

 Serve hot with the fried rice or noodles.
