Garlic Chilli Prawn Fry

Updated: May 27, 2020

This is recipe that I made along the process of cooking. I was just following my heart, so to speak . Garlic Chili Prawn Fry is a simple recipe without using much complicated ingredients. To be frank I really didn’t measure the ingredients. Its a roughly measurement, just like how my mom used to do those days. This is a two person dish( well, it depends on the person).

Ingredients : To Marinate 300 gm fresh prawn without head 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste 2 tbsp chili powder 2 sprig of curry leaves about 2 tsp salt

Other Ingredients : 5 pods of garlic chopped finely 1 tbsp Coconut oil 1 tbsp Chili flakes Juice from half lime Oil for fry

Preparation Method : 1. Clean the prawns by removing heads only. Marinate the prawns with the above mentioned ingredients for approximately 15 minutes. 2. Heat the oil in a heavy bottom vessel and fry the prawns together with the curry leaves. Fry for 3 to 5 minutes till the outer layer is crispy. Keep aside. 3. Heat another pan with one tbsp coconut oil. Add chopped garlic and saute for few seconds in low fire. Be mindful not to get the garlic burned. 4. Toss the fried prawns in the garlic oil and sprinkle with chili flakes. 5. Remove from heat and squeeze the lime over the fried prawns.

Note : If you do not have coconut oil, its okay to use any vegetable oil. Coconut oil normally gives more pungent flavor and taste.

Serve immediately with hot rice. Very simple isn’t it? Do try and let us know the outcome in the comments section below!
