Prawn Cutlet

I love the Prawn Cutlet Burger from MOS burger. Each time I eat it, I'll try to figure out what's in there. I never succeed (because I'm not the Remy, the Chef Mouse ... *giggle*).

My version is not as good but it will do. I shouldn't complain since the guys at home love it. Just that, I have been doing this for so long I think I should be thinking of ways to improvise it. Yeah, I'll do it the next time I do this. For the meantime, the family is still having the 'original' WokkingMum's Prawn Cutlet. *giggle*
