Don’t we all wish at some point or the other, that we didn’t have to spend so much time in the kitchen. Specially on those days when someone comes over unexpected and decides to stick around to watch that football match. Its at times like these that recipes like this come to the rescue. Absolutely no effort and time to make and yet you look like a star, ‘cuz men love fried food specially while watching their matches. And beer batter prawns with some chilled beer to go with it … You might just score some special points too :-p. Its really as simple as clean , dip and fry. Prepare the prawns by shelling them and de-veining them. Lightly salt them and keep chilled in the fridge. If you have the time try and chill the flour as well. All cold ingredients really help to make a crispy batter. The beer too needs to really cold, so give it 30 mins in the freezer. When ready, stir the beer in the flour, using enough to make a really thick batter that will coat the prawns. Put in hot oil and fry for 2 mins or till golden and crisp. Drain on a kitchen towel and serve immediately.
- 20 large Tiger Prawns – de-veined and shelled with tail on

- Your choice of beer -preferably the light kind- a stout will definitely ruin the colour of the final product.
- salt to taste
