Kids Love Making Prawn Crackers
Kids Love Making these Prawn Crackers, they look like slivers of plastic, but in hot oil they puff up into tasty prawn cracker snacks just like those at restaurants with any Asian foods- Indonesian, Thai, VietNamese- I have seen these at all sorts of restaurants and always wondered how they made them.
The oil has to be quite hot for these to work well, so make sure an adult is around to make sure it is not a danger to the kids because of splattering, etc. Luckily our 8 year old is deft with the chopsticks :)
*Although these snacks are not made with meat or meat extracts, they are made with prawn extract and would be considered a transitional food, not a vegetarian food by some. We find it difficult to avoid fish and fish stock to be completely vegetarian in our lifestyles- of course every family should choose what works best for their situation.
