2 tablespoons crisp-fried sliced shallots

Wash the prawns, remove the feelers and drain. The shells are left on. Toss the prawns in the tapoica flour until completely coated. Fry in plenty of hot oil over medium heat until crisp and golden, then remove from the pan and drain.
The sauce is prepared by mixing the tamarind juice, vinegar, nam pla and sugar in a pot and then cooking until thickened. The chile, sesame, shallot and garlic are then stirred in. The sauce is served in a bowl along with the prawns.
