Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Marination Time: 10 minutes (minimum)

Grilling Time: 15 – 20 minutes

Serving: 4


400 gms prawns ( de-veined and washed)
1 tbsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp red chilly powder
1 tbsp of hung curd
1 tsp chaat masala
1 tsp rock salt
1 tsp black salt
1 tsp roasted cumin seeds (powdered)
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
Chopped coriander leaves
Salt to taste
1 lemon
1 tsp Mustard oil
Onion rings


De-vein and wash the prawns. In a bowl, add turmeric powder, red chilly powder, hung curd, rock salt, black salt, black pepper powder, roasted cumin powder, ginger garlic paste, mustard oil and salt to the prawns and marinate them.
Pre-heat the oven for 10 minutes at 200°C. Wrap your baking tray with aluminium foil so that it doesn’t turn black on grilling. It also becomes easy to wash the baking tray post grilling. Place the marinated prawns in the tray and grill them for 10-15 minutes at 200°C.
Place them on a serving plate. Squeeze lemon juice and garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot with tangy chutneys and onion rings.
