Prawn Pakora can be served as a starter or as a snack with tea/coffee. Pakoras remond me of Mumbai rains- we had them with masala chai (tea) on a rainy day! It is very easy to make and tastes amazing!! I make these quite often as, my daughter absolutely loves them.
- Prawn 300 g- chopped into small pieces
- Onion, 1 medium chopped
- Garlic paste 1 teaspoon
- Ginger paste 1 teaspoon
- Green chillies, finely chopped 1-2 (if you like spicy pakoras)
- Gram flour 5 tablespoons
- Cornflour 4 tablespoons
- Semolina 1 tablespoon
- Cumin 1 teaspoon
- Coriander 1 teaspoon
- Paprika 1 teaspoon
- Red chilli powder ½ teaspoon
- Garam masala powder 1 teaspoon
- Salt to taste
1. Mix all the ingredients together to make a thick batter.
2. Heat sunflower oil in a non-stick pan to deep fry the pakoras.
3. When the oil is sufficiently hot, make small balls of the batter and drop it slowly in the oil.
4. Fry them on high flame for 2 minutes and then on medium flame for 10 minutes, until golden brown.
5. Remove the pieces and drain the excess oil on a kitchen towel.
5. The prawn pakoras are ready to be served with a dip of your choice. I prefer the green or red chutney (recipe was posted earlier) with the pakoras, but you can also serve them with tomato ketchup or hot chilli sauce.
6. Enjoys the pakoras on a rainy day and let me know if you like it!
