Fried Prawns

This is one of the most common prawn item you will find in every konkani home :-) It disappears in just minutes..Coarse rice flour known as aalen in konkani is actually used to coat the fish so that it gets crispy.Sooji/rava is a good substitute in case rice flour is not available.

Ingredients -
red chilly powder
turmeric powder
coarse rice flour or sooji/rava

Method -
Wash the prawns well.
Marinate them with salt,turmeric and red chilly powder for atleast an hour.
Roll them in coarse rice flour or sooji.
Heat a non-stick tawa with some oil.
Shallow fry the prawns on both sides till crispy.
Serve them as a starter or just with meal :-)
