Been hunting for some for ages, all of the prawn crackers I can find have extract of prawn or shrimp in them. Even at Chinese Shops and Supermarkets they don't seem to do them. Surely its possible to get them in different non-meat/fish flavours or plain ones?
Has anyone came across any?

OK I am sorry but this is what gets me about vegetarians
why do you want to taste the flavour if you have chosen not to eat the real thing?


By the way, did you iron your curtains?


hahaha!!!!! upfront there SS??!!?!

Who says I want the flavour of prawn in them? I just like prawn crackers whether you could taste the prawn or not! Not ironed them yet not =D

well yes, but I've always wondered


Some do some don't. Personally I never liked eating meat in the first place, its why I became vegetarian, so the taste doesn't mean much to me, I just like the texture of prawn crackers lol

I know, I wasn't meaning to spark a debate off, sorry OP, I see what you mean now,

I can't think of any similar crackers, although, have you tried crsipy noodles? not quite the same, but they are tasty.


Sorry I edited my post to remove that, reread and realised you were just asking a question which I guess is ok :p
I haven't tried crispy noodles no, but seen them in recipes I'll look into it thanks =]

Would you be able to try making them...without putting the prawn things in?

Maybe because they like the taste of meat, but dont like the stigma of the animal thing.
Maybe because they ain't allowed meat for some reason of other.
Maybe they are dieting, and prefer the lower calorie stuff.
Just a few ideas...

your welcome....you could try putting different substitutes in and see what happens :)

Not seen any ever.
Seen Chinese takeaways and restaurants here selling prawn crackers and such things as stir fry with oyster sauce,they down as vegetarian section but never are truly veggie.

Similar alternative,maybe poppadoms ( can't spell that ) I had some Patak's ones other day,Chilli & Lime.
#13
yeah poppadoms are more crispy and less crunchy lol I love them packs of walkers popadom things though they're amazing! Similar to prawn crackers they're in chilli and lime too, these what you mean?

could try grilling them slowly with foil over them...or put them in the oven on low with the door open, so theres the heat to dry them out but so they wont cook?

In spain we have vegetarian versions of them. They are brown and a little spicy but seem the same texture. I can't remember exactly what prawn crackers are like as I've been veggie for 23 years but they seem very similar. Do they not do them over here. Sorry I only eat chinese in Spain

These were Pataks. It said to serve with chutney's and other dips but they tasted strong on own.

Another website mentions putting them in a dehydrator they seem quite cheap-ish! I tried making banana chips in the oven once instead of a food dehydrator and they just cooked even on low with foil over them so not sure if it would work =/

Sounds interesting! I can't find anything over here no, I've only ever came across Walkers Sensation Popadom Bites which are similar to prawn crackers (though not as nice) I'll try find out what the ones in spain are called. rep+

Just been looking on tesco and came accross these:
http://www.tesco.com/superstore/xpi/8/xpi63326538.htm
not sure what they're like but I'll buy some soon to see =D
#21
I would recommend this recipe http://kuali.com/recipes/viewrecipe.asp?r=1351 and replace the prawn with onion. You might want to add a spice of your choice if the onion lacks flavour. The tapioca flour isn't sold in Tesco or any of the big supermarkets as far as I'm aware but you can find it in most Chinese supermarkets. Hope this helps!
