Summary Description

This is a different recipe to your regular deep frying prawns or prawns 65.I love to experiment with foods.Thats y played with it. Dry roast the sesame seeds before getting into process. Never imagined how the outcome will be but to my surprise my hubby liked it very much. Except the spice level. Here I got a compliment from both of them(Hubby and Mahadev)Try this next time when you have prawns in fridge.With sesame seeds will be amazing.


Category-prawns/deep fried non vegetarians/sea foods

Preparation time-20 mins

Cooking time-30 mins


Deveined cleaned shrimps(prawns)-15(med size)

To Marinate

Salt                              - to taste

Corn flour                    -2-3 tbsps.

Lemon juice                -1 tsp.

Soya sauce                  -1 tsp.(optional)

Ginger garlic paste     - 1 tsp.

Red chili powder        -1 tsp.

Coriander powder      - tsp.

Cumin powder             - 1/4 tsp.

 Egg Batter

Egg                                     - 1 big

Baking powder               -2 pinches (optional)

Toasted sesame seeds -1/8 cup (I used)

Salt                                       - small pinch

Black pepper powder    -1/4 tsp. (optional)


1. Take prawns in a colander and wash them twice/thrice. Leave it aside.Mix all the ingredients which mentioned under the category “To marinate”. Dip the prawns in this batter and mix well to coat the spices. Keep aside at least  for 20-30 minutes In another wide bowl mix EGG BATTER ingredients using fork for a good mix.Leave both the batters to set for ½ an hour.After ½ hour heat oil in a deep bottomed pan and then arrange kitchen tissue paper in a plate for placing the deep fried sesame prawns.unnamed[1]2. In deep frying oil, drop the prawns one by one which is dipped in egg batter consistency.Repeat the same process for the remaining prawns. Deep fry in batches. Around in 2 batches you can complete...Don’t crowd the pan with lots of prawns. It’s difficult to fry them. All frying portions can be done in medium flame.unnamed[2]3. Once the prawns are fried, place it in the tissue paper which we have already set aside. Your sesame prawns are ready to serve/taste.

4. Finally serve with ketchup n lemon wedge. Along with this I sliced some carrots and cucumber. So, that was the dinner.

MAHA’S Notes

1. Without sesame also you can go with the recipe. You can assume the name as prawns pakoda or prawns -65If you are adding pepper powder in egg batter, then add less red chili powder during Mari nation.

2. Be careful while adding corn flour.Don`t deep fry prawns for a long time because it is soft in nature.Addition of Soya sauce gives a kick to this prawn recipe
