Ingredients:
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 and 1/2 ounces crab meat
4 Tablespoons chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon seafood curry powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with one teaspoon of water

3. Make the batter mixing both flours, baking powder, custard powder, and two tablespoons of water.
4. Heat oil for deep frying, and then deep-fry a few vegetables at a time until crisp. Remove them and drain, and repeat until all are deep-fried. Put a few of them into but sticking out of the crabmeat stuffing. Then plate and serve.
