To make the batter, combine the rice flour, coconut, sugar, yeast and a large pinch of salt. Add the eggs and 250ml of water. Whisk until smooth. Cover and leave for 1 hour until bubbled up.
Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Blitz all the masala paste ingredients plus 50ml of the chilli soaking liquid in a blender until smooth – you can grind the whole spices with a pestle and mortar first if your blender isn’t powerful enough. Set aside.
For the filling, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat and fry the onions for 35-40 minutes, stirring a few times, until the onions have reduced and are golden brown.
Add the paste and stir for 2 minutes. Reduce the heat. Add the vinegar and sugar. Fry for 2 minutes. Add the coconut cream. Fry for a minute. Season, add the prawns, stir and cook for a minute. Add the coriander, turn off the heat, cover and leave to cool.
Brush an 18cm round springform cake tin with the melted butter. Lightly dust with rice flour. Pour in half the batter, add the prawns, and pour over the rest of the batter. Bake on the oven’s middle shelf for 30-35 minutes or until it springs back when pressed and is golden. Invert onto a plate. Leave to cool slightly. Serve warm.
