Ingredients to make Batter fried Blue Scampi

  • Blue scampi /tiger prawns (Cleaned and shelled) 200 gms
  • 1/2 tsp garlic paste
  • 1/2 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder
  • 1 tbsp soya sauce
  • 1 tbsp button onions, chopped
  • 8 - 10 curry leaves
  • 1 egg white
  • For the Marinade:
  • To Garnish:
  • 8-10 button onions (peeled and thinly sliced)
  • 1 tbsp fresh coconut (cut into small bits)
  • curry leaves 10-12
  • mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
  • 1 dry red chilly
  • 1/2 cup carrot, grated
  • 1/2 cup cabbage, thinly sliced

How to make Batter fried Blue Scampi

  1. Grind all the ingredients listed under Marinade together to a fine paste. Rub the marinade to the prawns nicely. Add the soya sauce and 2 tbsp of the beaten egg. Mix well, cover and keep aside for at least 1 hour.
  2. Place a nonstick pan on the gas stove. Heat the oil. Toss in the coconut bits and fry into a golden brown colour. Keep aside.
  3. Next fry the prawns one by one and drain out into a colander.
  4. Drain out the remaining oil. Into 1 tbsp of the same oil. add the curry leaves, mustard seeds and onions in that order. Fry for 5 minutes. Place the prawns in the pan carefully. Toss in the coconut bits. Serve immediately on a bed of salad.

My Tip:

I generally make the left over beaten egg into a thin omelette and use for garnishing so that there is no wastage. Chilli sauce and tartar sauce are befitting dips too.
