To make this dish, first we need to wash and devein the prawns. Pat them dry and then marinate with ginger-garlic paste, 1/2 tsp red chilli powder, coriander powder, 1 tsp lemon juice, and salt. Set it aside for 20–25 minutes.
Now, squeeze out all the excess moisture from the prawns and add maida, besan, yoghurt, oil, and the remaining lemon juice and red chilli powder.
Mix well and coat the prawns nicely with all the masalas.
Heat oil in a kadhai set on a low-medium flame and start adding the marinated prawns to it in batches. Deep-fry them until they turn golden brown in colour.
Once done, transfer to a plate lined with tissue paper to remove excess oil. Sprinkle some chaat masala on top and enjoy! Maharashtrian prawn koliwada is ready!
