I remembered eating this treat from a relative a few years ago and decided to try it myself.
Imitation crab sticks
Some plain flour
Oil for frying
First unroll the crabstick n shred them using your fingers to feel n peel out strand by strand
I laid them on a paper towel
Heat some oil - enough for deep frying
Coat the strands in plain flour
Fry them in batches till golden brown
Use a paper towel to absorb the oil
Keep in airtight container.
Note : I tried without plain flour but unable to achieve crispyness
Drain on paper towel
