Spicy Prawn Fry!!!

Hi guys!!!

Prawn is an all-time favorite to both me and Ganesh. I prepare prawns in some form once a week. I have long wanted to try a deep fried version of prawns and did so finally :-) Just toss in a few spice powders, mix well and fry.. Voila!!! A yummy and crispy prawn fry is ready.

Now lets see the recipe.


King Prawns (cleaned and deveined) - 20
Besan powder - 2 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Corriander powder - 1 tsp
Fennel powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Oil - for deep frying
Curry leaves - a bunch


1. Mix all the powders with salt and make a smooth paste by sprinkling some water. Add the prawns to this mixture and toss well till the masala coats thoroughly. Set this aside for atleast 1 hour.
2. Heat oil in a kadai on medium high flame. When the oil is heated add the prawns and fry on both sides till golden brown.
3. When done with all the prawns just fry the curry leaves in the same oil and use them to garnish the prawns.

Super simple prawn fry is ready. This is a great combination with rice and rasam/sambar. Even good to just munch on as a snack :-)
