  1. In a deep saute pan or pot, heat the oil to 360 degrees F. Combine the flour, sugar, and Essence in a medium bowl. Slowly add the beer and whisk to form a smooth batter. Place the coconut flakes in a shallow bowl. One at a time, holding them by the tail, dip the shrimp into the batter to coat, then dredge in the coconut, turning to coat evenly and pressing to make the flakes adhere. Fry in batches in the oil until golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels and season lightly with Essence. Place the chutney in a bowl on a large platter. Arrange the shrimp on the platter around the bowl and sprinkle with the chopped cilantro. Serve immediately. Yield : 4 to 6 servings
