Instructions

  1. Mix batter

    • Mix the batter ingredients well until the batter is smooth.


  2. Sear prawns

    • Place a non-stick pan on the stove and heat it up. Add 2 tablespoons of sesame oil and sear the shrimps for a minute. Remove and add to the batter.


  3. Fry green onions

    • Now add the remaining oil and put the green onion on the pan parallel to each other and fry for 2 minutes before pouring the batter with shrimps over the green onion evenly.


  4. Fry pancake

    • While the pancake is being cooked, keep patting it, pressing it slightly, and keeping it in a nice shape with your spatula.
    • A few minutes later, when the bottom of the pancake turns crispy and golden brown, turn it over.
    • Cook for a few more minutes until the bottom of the pancake turns crispy and golden brown again and flip it or turn it over.
    • Cook for another minute and transfer it to a serving plate.
