  • 1/2 tsp corn flour
  • Pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste

  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder

Other ingredients

  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 tbsp garlic chopped
  • 1 tbsp ginger chopped
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Spring onion green part/ coriander leaves
  • Salt to taste



  • Clean and devein the prawns.
  • Marinate it with the ingredients listed under marination and shallow fry it till cooked. Keep aside.
  • Meanwhile mix in the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl and keep ready.
  • In the same oil in which you fried the prawns, add in the onions, ginger and garlic. Sauté for 5-8 minutes on medium flame.
  • Add in the sauce mix and sauté well for 10 minutes on medium flame. Add 3 tbsp water and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add in the salt.
  • Throw in the fried prawns and mix well.
  • Garnish with spring onion greens or coriander leaves.


After frying the prawns you will have the leftover fried masala stuck onto the pan. Don’t discard it, instead add that to the sauce along with fried prawns. That will give a new level of taste to the dish.
Be careful while adding salt to the marination as well as the sauce, as we are adding soya sauce in both.
Serve this with noodles, pasta, fried rice or rotis.
