  •  Grind together all the ingredients listed under 'to grind' with little water to a smooth paste. Marinate the cleaned prawns with this marinade and keep refrigerated for half an hour.
  • When done, add rice powder to this prawns marinade (only just before frying). This gives the prawns a fine crispy coating.

  • To the same oil, fry curry leaves and then add the marinated prawns. Combine well.
