Deep fried Tiger shrimps

Had to try making some deep fried Tiger Shrimps.
Found some nice big shrimps in a local Chinese store close to my office.
Have to go there more times. A lot of interesting food there for sure.

This is the ingredients u need for this:

Shrimps 1 kg, about 50 big shrimps
Rapeseed oil in this case or other , 1 litre 
Flour 4 dl ( Gluten free works good )
Salt 5 tbsp
Baking soda 1 tbsp
Corn flour 2 dl
Sour milk / yogurt 5 dl
Eggs 2
Paprika powder 5 tbsp
Garlic powder 3 tbsp
Onion powder 3 tbsp
Blackpepper crushed 2 tbsp
Cayenne pepper 2 tsp

Make sure the shrimps are unfrozen.
Start preparing the batter.

In one bowl u mix together the Sour milk/yogurt with the eggs.
In the other bowl you mix the flours salt and spieces and mix it well .
You also prepare the oil in a pan and heat it up on the stove top. Should be around 180 degrees Celsius when ready. You can test with a toothpick to see if it bubbles around it.
Make sure not to use the fan when working with oil and have lid prepared for the pot if any flames. Also a fire blanket prepared in worst case. No water on oil !!

Now it´s time for the fun.
You start dipping the shrimps in the dry flour mix . Then in the wet milk/egg mix.
Then another dipp in the flour mix again. 
Prepare a few shrimps and then u drop them slowly in the hot batter. You drop a handful of shrimps and let them deep fry for maybe 2 minutes. Not to many at the same time as they will glue together then in the oil.
They start pooping up to the surface pretty quick. Let them get a little gold brownish color before they are removed from the oil. Use a big spoon with holes in to avoid to much oil.
Drop the shrimps on a plate with paper towel on to dry away all the extra oil from the shrimps.
This frying process takes about 20-30 minutes.

During this time u might have prepared some rice and a goods dip sauce for the shrimps.
You just need to enjoy the fried shrimps as they are.

Now you have a very delicious and crunchy dish to enjoy.

Good luck!
