How to Make Spicy Prawn Puffs

  • Sift the flour with a teaspoon of salt and baking powder.
  • Mix the butter with the flour and knead into a stiff dough using very little water.
  • Keep aside.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pan and saute the onions lightly.
  • Add the cleaned and washed prawns, chilli powder, tomato, chopped ginger, garlic paste, coriander leaves and salt.
  • Add 1/2 cup water.
  • Stir well and cook on low heat, till the prawns are cooked and all the water dries up.
  • Remove and keep aside to cool.
  • Now take the prepared dough onto a floured board and roll it out into a thin sheet.
  • Cut rounds of about 10 cm diameter with a saucer.
  • Put a tablespoon of the cooked prawns on one half of the rounds and fold the other half over.
  • Seal the edges by dampening with a little water.
  • Prepare the puffs in this way till all the dough and the prawns are used up.
  • Make indents with a fork to seal the edges.
  • Heat oil for frying in a fairly deep pan till smoky.
  • Slowly drop in the puffs one by one (as many as the pan can hold).
  • Fry till crisp and brown on both sides.
  • Remove from the oil and drain.
  • Serve hot.
