Step 1: Top Hats Cases

  • 1 metal mold
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp rice flour
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 180 ml water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • oil for deep frying

Step 2: Filling

  • 1 jicama, julienned
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 6-8 shelled and deveined shrimp, chopped into small pieces
  • salt to taste
  • white pepper powder to taste
  • 1 dash oyster sauce


  1. Pour all ingredients in step 1 into a bowl and beat with an electronic mixer. If you do not have an electronic mixer, whisk the batter until smooth. Heat oil in a wok with the mold in the oil. Do not overheat the mold. Dip the mold into the batter so it's evenly coated and then deep fry the batter. To remove the case from the mold while frying, jiggle the mold up and down. Once the case turns light brown, remove it from the wok and set aside.

  2. To cook the filling, add some oil into a wok. Stir fry the chopped garlic and shallots until light brown. Add in shrimp, jicama, and carrot and season with salt, pepper, oyster sauce. Cook for 5 minutes.

  3. To serve, fill the cases with the filling, garnish with spring onion, and serve with chili sauce.
