500 gm Prawns shelled and deveined . Soak in water which has 60 ml of white vinegar for 15 minutes to get rid of that fishy smell .Then wash well and dry . The Marinade :
1 tablespoon Plain flour .
1 teaspoon Ginger paste .
1 tablespoon Garlic paste .
1 tablespoon Ginger paste.
1 tablespoon Red chili powder .
1/2 teaspoon Thymol / Ajwain seeds .
Juice of one lemon .
Salt to taste
Marinade the prawns in all the above ingredients for 1 hour , not longer as the prawns loose their firmness.
You will also need , after you have stir fried the prawns : 1 Large Onion chopped .
3-4 Tablespoons chopped Garlic .
8-10 Whole dried Red Chilies .
Lots of Curry Leaves . ( 10 -15 ) The Actual cooking :
In a wok heat oil and stir fry the prawns for 3-5 minutes until done . Remove the prawns and in the same wok without washing ( to keep all flavours ) add a little more oil and cook the onions and garlic until they are translucent , then add the whole chilies and the curry leaves .. stir for a minute or so . Introduce all the prawns back , mix , cook another minute to blend flavours . Enjoy !
Traditionally the prawns are deep fried . I prefer stir frying them .
