To make the filling:
In a pan melt the butter, followed by garlic, onion, pepper, salt, and prawns.saute for 5 to 10 minutes. then stir in the flour until smooth. Gradually whisk in the warm milk and cook, stirring, until smooth and thick.you can also add cheddar or mozzarella cheese to enhance the taste.
To make the pastry:
Bring to a boil the water, salt and butter. Remove from the heat and add the sifted flour. Beat until smooth then return to the stove and cook until thick and smooth enough to come cleanly away from the sides of the pan. Cool and roll out thinly on a floured board.
Cut out rounds (about 8 to 10cm each) and place a spoonful of the prawn mixture on one half. Fold and seal with beaten egg to form half moons.
Dip the prepared rissoles first into beaten egg then into the breadcrumbs. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set. Deep-fry in hot oil until golden brown. Serve immediately.
