….Traveling with someone is a great blessing, especially with people I miss. It was a short time traveling in Banff Alberta, but it was amazing. It’s interesting to have delicious food while traveling. A lot people say, go to Banff and try the beef. It was really savory and neat. I memorized appetizer recipes as a record of our travel. This dish is easy to cook and there are many ways to prepare it. I made it in my own way so as not to forget the charming taste. These are perfect as a snack or appetizer. The light curry flavor goes well with nearly everything that you want to marinate in it. It’s a creamy dip that we lighten up by mixing some yogurt into the mayonnaise. It’s delicious and it’s just as delicous on a raw veggie platter. Making the curry dipping sauce is about as easy as it gets. Simply mix the ingredients together. The curry dip tastes best if it’s allowed to sit for a half hour before you eat it. If you try it right away, it will be a little gritty and the flavor won’t be as strong.

Servings: 4–5

Time: 50 minutes


  1. 20 pieces prawn, remove the shells, but leave the tail on
  2. 1–2 tbsp Thai yellow curry paste(blue elephant)
  3. 1 tbsp potato starch
  4. 2 tbsp flour
  5. 3 cups panko
  6. 2 tsp curry powder
  7. 2 eggs, beaten
  8. 1 tsp Mirin
  9. 1 pinch of sea salt
  10. canola oil for fry
  11. 1 cup cabbage, julienned
  12. 2 red radishes, julienned

For curry mayonnaise dipping:

  1. 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  2. 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  3. 1 tbsp curry powder
  4. 1 tsp turmeric
  5. 1/2 tsp sriracha
  6. 1/4 tsp sea salt
  7. 1 tsp lemon juice(this is optional)

….all mixed

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Put the mayonnaise, plain yogurt, curry powder, turmeric, sriracha, and sea salt into a bowl to mix well. Keep it in a refrigerator.

2. Put the prawn onto a tray.

3. Marinate it with the curry paste and set aside for 10 minutes.

4. After 10 minutes, coat the prawn with the potato starch and the flour well. Repeat it with the rest of the prawns.

5. Beat the egg, Mirin, and a pinch of sea salt into a bowl. Dip each prawn in the beaten egg. Put the panko and curry powder into a tray to mix it softly. Coat the prawn with the panko mixture. Transfer it onto another tray.

6. Heat a pan with medium high heat and add the canola oil into the pan. Heat the oil to 350 degrees(when you put wooden chopstick in the oil, there should be bubbles around the chopstick).
