Directions | How to make Prawns Popcorn
First, marinate 250gm prawns for half an hour in: black pepper powder,turmeric powder,red chilli powder, ginger-garlic paste,
lemon juice, mint(pudina) and salt.
When ready to fry, take ½ cup of all-purpose flour mixed with quarter tsp. of salt and ½ egg, beaten well.
One at a time, roll the prawns in the remaining flour,then roll them once more in the bread crumbs.
This normally gets messy and sticky with hands but once you get hold of it,it will take much time.
Heat oil in a pan, then deep fry them in batches at medium heat until golden and crispy.
After frying, remove from heat and place the prawns on absorbent paper or paper towel to drain out excess oil.
Serve with fries or a simple tomato ketchup dip!!
TIP: Do not over-fry as prawns harden if over-cooked.
