Amritsari Prawn Fry Recipe: How To Make Amritsari Prawn Fry
To begin with, add besan, maida, corn flour and ginger-garlic paste in a bowl. Add haldi, garam masala, Kashmiri red chilli powder, amchur powder, hing and ajwain. Mix well. Now, gradually add some water to make a thick batter. (Make sure not to add too much water as the prawns already contain water).
Refrigerate this mixture for around 15-20 minutes. Once done, heat some oil in kadhai set on medium flame and start adding the prawns. Fry them until they turn golden brown and crispy. (This will take around 4-5 mins).
Drain them out on a paper towel and serve hot with sliced onions, green chillies and green chutney on the side.
