Prawns Tawa fry

Hello friends,

 I had promised you a prawn recipe some time back, and I am here to keep my word. There is so much you can do with prawns but today let's stick to a very easy recipe.


Firstly you have to ensure the prawns are fresh and deviened or else you can end up with severe tummy upset. I am blessed  to have CambayTiger in my vicinity,  Bandra. Serving up fresh seafood which is packaged well. They even cut, clean, marinate the fish you want, delivering all over Mumbai and now Navi Mumbai too. U can order online too. I picked up 250 gms of Cambay prawns for this recipe.


250 Cambay prawns

For marinade

2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp dhaniya powder
1 tsp jeera powder
1 tbsp vinegar or nimbu juice
1 tsp oil
Salt to taste
1 tsp corn flour, optional
Oil for shallow frying


1. Make sure that the prawns you use are fresh, shelled, deviened and washed properly. I wash them in a handful of rock salt and gram flour for the fishy smell to go away. I have seen my grandmother do this. 

2. Now in a mixing bowl combine all the masalas to make the marinade. 

3. Add the prawns and coat them well. 

4. Leave this covered for half an hour.

5. Heat oil in a frying pan, add the prawns to it. Don't be afraid as the prawns will emit water. But eventually will dry up. 

6.  Shallow fry on both sides till cooked and crispy. 

7.Serve hot with kachumber.


Now here goes an easy variation. You can make a Prawn Frankie with the prawns taw Fry. Add an omelette, to a roti, cook on both sides. Fill it with prawns, salad  and sauces, roll it and you are ready to go.
