Golden Fried Prawns Recipe


For the marinate:

  • 7 Tiger prawns/Pink prawns
  • a pinch of ground pepper 
  • a few drops of soy sauce
  • a few drops of vinegar
  • a pinch of salt

For the crust:

  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp corn flour
  • 1 tbsp egg white
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp water
  • 1 garlic flake (grated)
  • 1 green chili (grated)
  • a pinch of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt


  1. Preparation - Wash the prawns. Remove the head and the shell while keeping the tail intact. Remove the black vein which runs along the outer side of the body. Make a light incision along the length and flatten out the flesh.
  2. Add all the other ingredients mentioned under the marination process to the dressed prawns. Mix gently and keep aside for 15 mins.
  3. Take all the ingredients mentioned for the crust into a mixing bowl. Whisk everything together to get a thick batter.
  4. Cooking - Heat sufficient oil for deep frying in a wok.
  5. Take each prawn. Dip it in the batter making sure to get an even coating. Place it the hot oil and cook for 2-3 mins on each side or till it is uniformly golden in color.
  6. Remove from the wok and place on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  7. Serve hot with tomato ketchup or even a mint chutney.
