✔️If the shrimp paste becomes too watery or loose add a bit more cornflour and blend for a few seconds.
✔️ If you want to avoid deep frying, you can shallow fry or bake the toasts. But I’m not sure, if how the outcome would be, as i have not tried it myself.
✔️ Be careful while adding salt since soya sauce is also used.
✔️ I think you can make the shrimp paste one day in advance and store it in fridge.
✔️ The frying part is a bit tricky. You’ve to be careful about the oil temperature. Since the prawns isn’t cooked, you need it to be cooked completely but at the same time you don’t want to burn the bread. Once the oil is hot enough, bring down the flame to low and fry.
✔️ For that extra crunch you can add panko bread crumbs along with sesame seeds on top of the bread.
