  2. Fry prawns - Heat oil in a flat and wide pan. I prefer coconut oil for frying. This is a shallow fry preparation, and a flat pan works the best.
  3. At medium-high flame, add prawns to the pan. Shallow fry the prawns for around 5-7 minutes on each side or until golden-brownish. Keep it aside. Fry prawns in batches. Don't overcrowd the pan.

Notes

  • You can also prepare it with the tiger prawns. With tiger prawns, marinate the prawns as per the recipe, insert a toothpick through the prawns and then fry. Inserting toothpick, helps to get the prawns fried properly.
