Crispy Prawns

Seafood is becoming a fast favourite with my family.My DH used to run away from curries but recently he's getting to like even that :) Fried foods are everyone's desire :) This time i decided to make this childhood favourite of mine.

I was actually looking to try the peri peri marinade with prawns but I didn't have fresh limes,so decided to go with this really simple dish.

The only time consuming thing with prawns is the cleaning part, I've heard that it may cause tummy upsets if not cleaned well.I always take extra care while cleaning and deveining it(remove the darkish line by creating a slit at the top portion of the prawn).Once the rinsing is done, do not forget to rinse it one last time in water mixed with a cap full of vinegar, this removes any stale smells on seafood.

This is how i made it.

You need

Prawns cleaned and rinsed 15 nos
Chilli powder 1 tsp
Pepper powder 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Garlic pounded 3 nos
Ginger 1/2 inch piece pounded
Oil 1 tsp
Oil to shallow fry
All purpose flour 1 tsp mixed with 2 tsp of water to make a runny paste
Bread crumbs to coat the prawns

  • Marinate the prawns with salt,pepper powder,chilli powder,ginger,garlic and oil(1tsp)
  • Let it sit for about 20 minutes.
  • Heat the pan to fry the prawns, dip each prawn in the flour paste and toss it in bread crumbs.
  • Shallow fry the prawns until brown.
  • Serve as starter with any sauce of your choice or with steamed rice and curry.
- Instead of the flour water paste you can use a beaten egg if you want.
