Recipe 41: Chilly Prawns

Sometime back I wrote a recipe for "White Pulao" and I told that it was served with chilly prawns.

Hence, I am sharing my recipe of Chilly Prawns today.
Easy to make at home. You wont bother ordering from restaurant anymore.

Lets begin !

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  1. 6-8 medium or tiger prawns
  2. 1 large onion
  3. 1 medium capsicum
  4. 1 lemon
  5. 4-5 green chillies
  6. 4-6 garlic cloves
  7. 1 tbsp. black pepper corns
  8. 1 tbsp. cornflour powder
  9. 1 tsp. garam masala powder
  10. 2 tbsp. soy sauce (click to buy Lee Kum Kee Dark Soy Sauce)
  11. 1 tbsp. tomato sauce
  12. 2 tsp. sugar
  13. 1 egg
  14. salt to taste


Wash and devein all the prawns.
In a mixing bowl, add prawns, egg, crushed black peppercorns, lemon juice, salt and cornflour powder.
Mix thoroughly and refrigerate for an hour.
In a kadhai, heat enough oil for deep frying.
Fry the prawns one by one.
Do not dump all the prawns and its marinate into the oil all at once.
Keep aside the prawns.
In a separate kadhai, heat some oil and sauté for 2 minutes on high heat chopped garlic and cubed onions and capsicum.
Add chopped green chillies, garam masala powder, soy sauce, tomato sauce, salt and sugar.
Add the extra marinate liquid of the prawns at this stage.
Stir for another 5 minutes.
Depending on whether you want gravy or not, add some water.
Right before serving, add the fried prawns.
Serve hot with noodles, pasta or rice/pulao.

I served mine with my pulao and an omlette.
