Chives' Shrimp Balls

Its such a beautiful evening! But don't want to go out alone. Hubby's at work. Called him up to see if he can make it early just today. Surprisingly he said he could. (just 20 mins earlier...which by the way is quite a bit, by the standard) I am elated! All those home makers/wives would agree how exhilerating it is to see your better half come home earlier than usual. In any case, since "a happy wife makes a happy life" (courtesy- According to Jim. His 19 point cohesive theory about men); I decided I would make something special for my hubby. His all time favourites are shrimps. So gave a twist to this shrimp dish....creative cooking! Its finger licking delicious.

Chives' Shrimp Balls

4 tbsp finely chopped chives
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp sherry
3 tbsp all purpose flour
2 tbsp bread crumbs
salt to taste
1 finely chopped green chilli
water (enough to make a dough like consistency-not too wet, nor too dry)
10 tiger prawns(cleaned, deveined and slightly sauteed)
oil for deep frying

In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients except oil and shrimps.
The mixture should be of dough like consistency. Divide the mixture into 10 equal sized ping pong balls.
Now wet your hand a little,pick one dough ball and flatten it in the middle, forming a depression in the middle with your thumb.Now place one shrimp in the middle and bring the sides of the dough to cover the shrimp. Roll.
The dough-mixture ball will cover the shrimp and the shrimp would not be seen. Repeat with all the shrimps.
Now in a pan, heat enough cooking oil to deep fry the shrimp balls. Deep fry. Drain on kitchen paper.
Serve hot with tea/coffee or just munch it!
