Baby prawn cutlets

 A visit to the fish market is enlightening every time, learning more about seasonal fish.  This time I discover more about baby prawn (white in color) being sold in Vata at one of the stalls. It looked just like a shrimp but very small in size. It is called Jawla in Maharastra and Galmbo in Goa. It can be cooked on a skillet with dry spices or made into a cutlet. Interesting, I thought while ending up buying it for Rs 50 for 4 vatas.

Baby Prawn Cutlets 

It's not a elaborate procedure at all. So let's start the recipe.


2 cups fresh baby prawns
2 small onion
2 finely chopped green chillies
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 cup gramflour ( channa atta )
1/2 tsp chilly powder
2 tbsp chopped corriander leaves
1/4 tsp tumeric powder
Juice of one lime
Salt to taste


1. You need to wash the baby prawns thoroughly to remove other fish particles dirt etc in running water.

2. Squeeze out excess water, add this to a mixing bowl. Now add finely chopped onions, green chillies, spices, ginger garlic paste, corriander leaves, gram flour, lime juice, salt and mix well.

3. Form small flat palm size cutlets.

4. Take a non stick pan, add cutlets to hot oil and shallow fry on both sides till golden brown.

5. Serve it piping hot on a plate with some ketchup. They are so yummy, you just can't stop at one.

Important tips.

You can add soaked bread instead of gram flour.

Instead of regular onion you can also use spring onions.

Always fry the cutlets on medium heat so that cutlets cook from inside and do not burn.

Enjoy cooking.
