About the Recipe
Prawns Koliwada is a crispy fried prawn appetizer, that is moderately spiced coated in a gram and rice flour marinate. Once fried these prawns are super crunchy and will be devoured immediately.
4-5tsp of SPICEBAY® Prawns Koliwada Masala
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tsp salt
2 tsp Gram flour
1 tsp all purpose flour/Rice flour
1 tsp kashmiri red chilli powder
2 tsp yogurt
1 pinch ajwain
1 cup oil for frying
Peel and devein the prawns, wash thoroughly and pat dry.
Marinate the prawns with SPICEBAY® Prawns Koliwada Masala, 1 tbsp lemon juice and salt for 15 to 20 minutes.
Squeeze out the extra moisture, add all-purpose flour, gram flour/besan, 1/2 tbsp Kashmiri chilli powder, rest of the lemon juice, yoghurt and 1 tsp of oil.
Mix all the spices with the marinated prawns.
Prepare oil for deep frying, Add the marinated prawns in the hot oil in batches, and fry till they turn a rich golden brown on both sides.
If you want to avoid deep frying, arrange the marinated prawns on an aluminium foil in a baking tray, drizzle a little oil on the prawns, and BROIL on HIGH, 5 to 7 minutes on both sides or until they turn a light golden brown.
Serve Koliwada Prawns masala with green chutney or ketchup.
