Baby Prawn are much smaller than the regular prawns. They are almost 1/4th in size of the regular prawns but are very tasty. You will get them in the monsoons. Some people call is “Jawla”.
Ingredients Baby Prawns
2 cups Lemon
1 Ginger Garlic Paste
2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tsp Haldi
1/2 tsp Jeera Powder
1/2 tsp Dhania Powder
1 tsp Oil
3 tsp Namak Shamak
1 tsp Coriander leaves a few for garnish
Wash and clean the prawns. Add the juice of one lemon, ginger garlic paste, salt, red chilli powder, haldi powder and marinate for half and hour.
In a pan heat oil. If you like a little more spice you can add a few chopped green chillies. Add the onion and saute till the onions are browned. Now put in the prawns and stir. Add the dhania, jeera powder and cook covered for 15 mins.
Remove into a bowl and garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Here instead of lemon juice, 1/2 tsp of tamarind pulp can also be added but only when the prawns are nearly done.
