Prawn Tikka Recipe: How To Make Prawn Tikka
You can use any prawns to make this recipe. King prawns, tiger prawns or whichever is easily available. To begin with the recipe, you first need to marinate the prawns. For that, take a mixing bowl, add red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt to taste, curd, ginger-garlic paste, and mix well.
Next up, heat 2 tbsp of mustard oil in a pan, add this to the mixture and let it rest for about 10-20 minutes. The mustard oil tadka will give the recipe a fiery and piquant flavour.
Add the prawns and coat them well with the marinade. Once done, place the bowl inside the refrigerator.
Once done, thread the prawns onto the skewers and grill them over a grill pan with a bit of oil/butter. Grill from both sides. Sprinkle some chaat masala and your prawn tikka is ready to be savoured!
