Servings 8


  • 500 gm  Shrimp
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro Leaves
  • 1 tsp Crushed Ginger
  • 1 tsp Crushed Garlic
  • 1 tsp Salt or to taste
  • 1 tsp Red Chili Powder
  • Juice Of Lemon
  • 1 Eye chili
  • 1 ½ cup Flour
  • ¼  tsp Baking Soda
  • ½  tsp White Pepper
  • 1 tsp Salt or to taste
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Oil 
  • ½  cup Flour 


  • In a large bowl, add the beaten egg and all marinade ingredients (cilantro, chili, ginger, garlic, salt, red chili powder and lemon juice). Mix until well-blended.
  • Add shrimp to the marinade, and coat well. Set aside.
  • In another large bowl, get the batter ready. Add 1 cup flour, baking soda, white pepper and salt. Mix well. Add water gradually, mixing it with a fork until well-blended. It’s okay if the mixture is a bit stiff.
  • Drain the egg marinade into the batter mixture, leaving the shrimp/prawn behind.
  • Beat the egg marinade into the flour batter with a fork until smooth. Make sure there are no lumps.
  • Now get your frying station ready. In a separate plate or bowl, pour ½ all purpose flour to coat the shrimp/prawn, and place it right besides the stove. In a small saucepan, heat oil.
  • Dip the shrimp into the batter, and then coat it really well with the dry flour. Spoon the flour over it if you have to, and add more as needed.
  • Once the oil is hot, gradually lower the battered shrimp into saucepan, and fry each side for roughly 1 ½ minute until crispy. Once the oil is piping hot, you can gradually lower the heat as you make your way to the rest of the shrimp.
  • Line a serving plate or bowl with a paper towel. Once done, place the prepared shrimp on it to drain.
  • Serve hot with a dipping sauce of your choice.
