Drain the prawns well.
Mix the flour, garlic, salt, pepper, chillies, coriander and mango powder, in enough water, to form a smooth paste.
Then add enough water to make a pouring consistency (when lifted in a spoon and dropped, it should fall in a continuous smooth stream).
Heat the oil in a kadahi till a drop of batter dropped in comes up at once.
Dip the prawns in the batter and drop into the hot oil.
Fry over medium heat, to a very light brown.
Lift out with a slotted spoon and keep aside.
When ready to serve, heat the oil again and fry over high heat to a golden brown.
Remove from oil, drain on an absorbent paper, and serve with a chutney or ketchup.
