15 mins.


20 mins.


5 mins.







  • 360g raw prawns
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. Ralahami turmeric
  • 2 tsp. Ralahami black pepper
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 tbsp. oyster sauce
  • pinch of salt

In a food processor, add the above-listed ingredients and blitz, until you get a paste.   


Transfer the prawn paste to a bowl and set it aside.   


Diagonally slice the bread, leaving you with 18 triangles.

No need to cut the crust. 


On a plate, place the sesame seeds. 


Using a butter knife, evenly spread the prawn paste on the triangle bread slices.  


Dip each of the triangles, prawn paste side-down on the sesame seeds, evenly coating the triangle. 


Place the coated triangles in a separate plate, ready for frying. 

Line a baking tray with kitchen paper towels. 


Heat oil in a large and deep-frying pan. 

Tip: to see that the oil is heated, drop a few breadcrumbs and if it sizzles, the oil is heated. 


Work in 2 to 3 batches. 

Add the triangles into the oil, the prawn paste facing down and fry for 1-2 minutes, and turn over and fry for another 2 minutes. 


Unloaded the fried triangles to the baking tray, to soak up any excess oil.


Serve the Prawn Toast with dipping sweet chili sauce.
