Quick Delicious Prawns

January 30, 2012

Due to our diet and erratic cooking habits we always try to find the fastest way to cook food – be it chicken, fish or prawns. It’s been quite a few time, Sumi cooked prawns with the shell on. To be frank, I have never been a huge fan of prawn, leave alone cooking it with the shell on. But Sumi was adamant this time and the result was fabulous. Not only did she cook it faster, the prawns were soft, moist and tasty. I am sure you all would love it too.

Quick Delicious Prawns


  • 500 gm prawns
  • 2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 4 green chillies chopped
  • 1″ ginger sliced
  • 8-10 small onions
  • 4-5 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp mustard oil
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil


Marinade the prawn with all the ingredients (except oil) and set it aside in refrigerator for 2 hrs.

Heat mustard oil till it smokes out, add vegetable oil, put the prawn and fry in medium heat for 5 minutes. Cover and cook till another 10 minutes.
