Ingredients

  • 10 large fresh oysters
  • 2 Tbs cornflour
  • 1 Tbs rice flour
  • 8 Tbs water
  • 1 Tbs oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 eggs, beaten

Instructions

  1. Wash the oysters in cold water and drain well.
  2. Mix both cornflour and rice flour together with the water to make a fairly thin batter.
