butter prawn - adjusted recipe

hello! it's been almost a month i didn't update anything here. the thing is, i went back to my hometown a week before Raya and spent 2 weeks there. with no internet connection, of course, i couldn't write up anything. well, to tell the truth is, although i am having my internet connection, there is actually nothing to write about anyway. of course Raya is about feast, eat, food everywhere but to be honest, i didn't captured any photos on food. bad isn't it? too tired and too busy, thus, the mood wasn't in me. i am sorry. however, here, i want to post adjusted recipe of butter prawn. i made this during first Raya and i got many compliments on them. hehehehehe. in 2 weeks time, i made this about 4 times as per requested. *bangga! haha. ish, tak baik*.my relatives also asking for this recipe, making me to write it down on paper. it's quite a hard task since, i just created and throw anything possible in the mixture, so, forgive me if the measurement down here isn't accurate enough :P trust your instinct and hand! haha. anyway, it's not really originally created by me, but there are too many versions of butter prawn recipe on the internet and i use a little here and there and combine them together and voila! this recipe is healthy too because it uses oats. picture maybe will be uploaded later if with Allah's will if i make it again since like i said earlier, i didn't captured any during Raya.
