Tawa Prawn Fry

I so wanted to blog this recipe of Prawn Fry that was mind-blowing ! Here goes the first post that I wrote in one go and without any story upfront. Dive in !


What you need

  • Prawns – 250 grams
  • Onions – 3 to 4 medium sized, chopped
  • Green Chilies – 3
  • Ginger Garlic Paste – 1-1/2 tablespoon
  • Turmeric Powder –
  • Garam Masala Powder – 1/2 tablespoon
  • Red Chili Powder – 1/2 tablespoon
  • Kokum /Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon
  • Oil – 5 tablespoons
  • Salt
  • Fresh Coriander leaves – for garnish

How to

  • Clean the prawns well with salt and turmeric powder and keep it aside. This recipe uses fresh big prawns, if using frozen prawns, de-freeze well.
  • Heat about 3 tablespoons of oil on a tawa. Add chopped onions and cook until very transparent.
  • Slit the green chilies and add to the tawa along with the ginger garlic paste.
  • Cook until the raw smell of the ginger garlic paste goes.
  • Now add in the turmeric powder, garam masala powder and red chili powder and saute for a few seconds.
  • Make sure not to burn the masala powders; to avoid that add in the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil.
  • Add the prawns and required salt. Keep tossing until the prawns get coated with the masala.
  • Cover the tawa with a lid and cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the fresh lime juice and do a final toss before switching off the stove.
  • Garnish with the finely chopped coriander leaves.

Serve it with hot steamed rice as a side dish for rasam or curd; goes well with dosai too!

Have a good long weekend everyone!
