Recipe Details

  • Serves: 2 persons
  • Preparation Time: 20 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 14 minutes

Recipe Ingredients

  • 15 -20 Pieces - Medium size Prawns
  • 4 tbsp - Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp - Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tbsp - Salt
  • 3 tbsp - Lemon Juice
  • 2 tbsp - Fish fry masala
  • 1 tbsp - Ginger garlic paste
  • 4 tbsp - Rice flour
  • 4 tbsp - Rava (Semolina)
  • 1 tbsp - Red chilly powder


1: Devein the prawns and wash them under plain running water.

2: Drain excess water from the washed prawns. You could also use a kitchen tissue to remove extra to tap dry the prawns. If they are left too moist, you won't get that perfect crispiness at the end.

3: Move the prawns to a bowl. Add lemon juice, salt and turmeric powder and mix well. Keep this aside for around 15 minutes.

4: After 15 minutes, coat the prawns with the rest of the marination ingredients. Add ginger garlic paste, fish fry masala, rice flour & salt to the bowl of prawns and mix well. Ensure that every piece is coated well. Keep this aside for 5 minutes.

5: In a Pan, heat some oil and then keep the stove flame to low. Now in a flat plate, take mix Rava and 1/2 tbsp salt and chilli powder. This will be used to coat the prawns before we start shallow frying them.

6: Coat each prawns piece with the Rava mixture and place them in the pan for frying. Fry each side for 7-8 minutes on a low flame. DO NOT cover the pan with any kind of a lid.

7: After around 14 minutes, move the prawns to a plate covered with oil absorbent paper. That is it, your prawns fry is ready to be served with rice or just like that as a starter. Hope you like this dish.
