PRAWN RAVA FRY



This is a quick and tasty prawn snack. Marinated prawns are coated with bread crumbs, rice flour and semolina and fried to a crispy texture. Serve with some chilli sauce or any sauce  of your choice. It is  a perfect party snack and a treat for sea food lovers.

Garlic paste .............. 1 tsp.
Ginger paste ............ 1 tsp.
Turmeric powder ..... 1/8 tsp.
Cumin powder ......... 1/2 tsp.
Coriander powder ... 1/2 tsp
Garam masala ........ 1/4 tsp.
Salt ......................... to taste
Oil .......................... 1 tbsp.
Lime juice .............. 1-2 tbsp.

For coating:
Egg ..... 1
Corn flour or rice flour ... 1 tbsp.
Salt......... to taste
Semolina/rava ........... fine variety
Bread crumbs.
Oil .......... to fry

Method:


1. Clean and de-vein the prawns leaving the tails intact. Marinate them with the ingredients mentioned above for marination. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

2. Beat the egg and corn flour or rice flour adding a pinch of salt.
3. Heat oil in a pan to deep fry the prawns.




4. Dip each prawn first in the egg mix and then coat it with breadcrumbs and semolina. ( you can prepare and refrigerate them until you are ready to fry )
