How to Make Prawn Cutlets

  • Collect the discarded legs and the head portion of the prawns. Grind them to a fine paste.
  • Next in a bowl, add 2 tbsp of besan, chopped onion, chopped chillies and salt with the prawn paste. Mix well.
  • Use the gram flour according to the consistency of the prawn paste. The prawn mix should not be too watery or too thick.
  • Divide the prawn mix into equal portions.
  • Now wash and dry your hands, rub them with a little oil.
  • Take each portion of the prawn mix and make it into a ball. Gently flatten each ball into a round patty of about 2 inch thickness.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a non-stick skillet over low heat. Fry them on each side for 2 to 3 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
  • Enjoy the prawn tikkis with rice and other curries or serve hot with ketchup and coriander chutney.
