Prawn (Kolambi): The common prawn is a well-known swimming crustacean, which is pinkish-brown in colour and features reddish spots and lines. Prawns are great supplier of proteins and low in fat and calories which make them a healthy food. Sourced from fisheries in the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea, these firm and mild flavored prawns are the perfect size for stir fries and some types of curries. These also go well in rice dishes such as Prawn Biryani.

  • Mix well so that the prawns get an even coating.
  • Just before serving, dip each prawn in flour, coat evenly and fry till brown these prawns taste incredible and you can vary the ingredients to suit your taste there are more variations you can do which are, use a mixture of wheat and rice flour instead of just wheat flour or use a mixture of wheat and semolina instead of just wheat flour or - instead of coating with flour.
  • Prepare batter of egg, salt, water and maida in equal parts, mix well but not too much and dip the prawns in this batter before frying, this gives a nice coating similar to japanese tempura but not quite or -use a batter of flour and water.
  • Add spices like chilli powder or tandoori masala and dip before frying for those with extra spicy taste or -mix slight oil in marinade, minimize the tamarind or use lemon juice instead of it and grill.

Now garnish with coriander leaves....Ready to Serve.
