This recipe was created for Lam Soon Oil in Singapore. Lam Soon Oil is the company that produces Knife Brand range of cooking oil.

1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp Olive oil
1/4 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp roasted white sesame seeds
2 sprigs Curry leaves(optional)
coriander leaves for garnishing

Method
1. Marinate prawns with rest of the ingredients except curry leaves and
coriander leaves.
2. heat up frying pan with oil(about 100ml)
3. add prawns one by one to fry till crispy(about 3 mins over medium fire)
4. Remove and set aside.
5. Turn off the fire.
6. Add curry leaves to the oil to fry briefly(fire must be off!)
7. It will pop for a while. Remove after the popping stops.
8. Arrange curry leaves on a plate. Top with prawns.

I use the recipe on fish today. Taste equally great! Omitted the curry leaves, sesame seeds and the coriander leaves though.

I think sambar powder is a generic name for an Indian spice mixture. You need to ask for this when you go to the Indian shop. Am I right Gina?
