    Jhinga ...prawns ....a heart-throb among fish lovers :)

    Here is a simple recipe for Prawn pakodas...absolutely yummy on a rainy day with masala tea/coffee/daru/dal chawal...


    1. Take in a bowl, around 200gm of medium sized prawns ...shell removed and de-veined.
    (I don't like the frozen ones, since they seem to lack the flavor and freshness. It would be ideal if the prawns are sized such that 1 is enough for 1 pakoda)

    2. Chop onion, ginger, garlic, green chilli and toss them into the bowl.
    (avoid ginger/garlic pastes since they have a sour taste)

    3. Add 3 parts of besan (gram flour...kadalai maavu in Tamil ) and 1 part of flour.

    4. Add salt as desired.

    5. Add a bit of haldi for a good coloration.

    6. Add water. Be careful to add only that much as to give a thick gooey consistency to the batter.
    The lesser the better.

    7. deep fry and serve with your favorite sauce.

    TIP: U can add a few tea-spoons of coarse rice flour to the batter to get extra crunchy/crispy pakodas


    Comes out like this :)

    I think I will try it with frozen Jhinga ! as that is what I get here :cry:
    but I would suggest you to kindly reduce the haldi.. then the taste will be even better !
