Nadan Chemmeen Varuthathu


Nadan Chemmeen Varuthathu

One more quick and easy prawns fry recipe.Earlier I had posted one prawns fry,very simple which I commonly make at home. This one I called nadan sytle because its my grandmother's recipe. What makes this special is the addition of sliced coconut, curry leaves and sliced ginger while frying. It has a very enticing aroma and can be served as a appetizer or with rice.

Ingredients
Prawns- 1 lb
Sliced coconut- 1/2 cup
Sliced ginger- 2 inch thick
Sliced chilly -2
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Garam masala- a pinch
Rice flour- 1 tsp (optional)
Salt to taste
Curry leaves-a few
Coconut oil for frying

Clean  and de-vein prawns.If you like you can keep the tail intact. Marinate prawns and coconut together with chilly powder, turmeric powder,pepper powder,garam masala and salt and keep aside for 10 minutes. Just before frying mix in rice flour. This will help to bind the masala. Heat oil in a pan and add curry leaves,green chilly and sliced ginger and fry till there is a nice aroma of ginger. Layer prawns and shallow fry on both sides till crispy  in the outside in a low medium flame. The coconut will also get fried and crispy along with the prawns. Serve warm.


Try this
Hope you will all enjoy

  7. Hi suja,

    Prawns being my ever fav, i cannot take my eyes off it. You have really prepared it so well, since it is your grand mother's recipe it should be a keeper too. I do the same way except for the coconut part.
