  • Discarded legs and head of 2 lbs. Prawns
  • 1 medium sized Onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 Green chillies (finely chopped)
  • 2 tbsp of besan (gram flour)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Oil, as required for pan fry
  • How to Make Prawn Cutlets:

    1. Collect the discarded legs and the head portion of the prawns. Grind them to a fine paste.
    2. Next in a bowl, add 2 tbsp of besan, chopped onion, chopped chillies and salt with the prawn paste. Mix well.
    3. Use the gram flour according to the consistency of the prawn paste. The prawn mix should not be too watery or too thick.
    4. Divide the prawn mix into equal portions.
    5. Now wash and dry your hands, rub them with a little oil.
    6. 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.
    7. 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.
    8. Enjoy the prawn tikkis with rice and other curries or serve hot with ketchup and coriander chutney.
