How to make Shrimp Fritters

So, how do you like your shrimp fritters ? What is your secret technique for a mouth-watering recipe ? Mine would actually be the hybrid of the traditional Malaysian all time favorite shrimp fritters, known as "Cucur Udang" and the Indian "Vada".

1) In a bowl, mix all the ingredients until batter form a paste-like mixture, and let chill in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes. 2) Remove batter from the refrigerator, dip the shrimp into the batter, deep fry at high-medium heat until golden brown.
