The Ingredients Unveiled

The secret to the magic of Prawn Puri lies in its ingredients. Here are the star components you'll need:

  • Fresh Prawns

  • Red Onion

  • Tomatoes

  • Garlic Cloves

  • Green Chilli

  • Ground Spices (Turmeric, Cumin, and Coriander)

  • Ginger

  • Lemon Juice

  • Fresh Coriander Leaves

  • Wheat Flour (for the puri)

With a handful of these ingredients, you can prepare a sumptuous Prawn Puri dish that leaves everyone asking for more.

Mastering the Art of Prawn Puri: Step-by-step Recipe

Preparing the Prawns

Firstly, marinate the prawns with a mix of lemon juice, turmeric, and salt. Set them aside for about 15 minutes. This enhances the flavor and removes any fishy smell, ensuring that the prawns are ready to be infused with the rich curry spices.

Crafting the Curry

In a hot pan, sauté finely chopped onions until they are golden brown. Stir in minced garlic and ginger, followed by diced green chillies for an added kick. Blend in the spices - ground coriander, cumin, and turmeric. Cook until the spices are well-integrated. Finally, add diced tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes break down into a rich and luscious gravy.

Bringing the Prawns to Life

Add the marinated prawns into the pan. Mix well, ensuring the prawns are coated evenly with the sauce. Cook until the prawns turn pink, indicating they're perfectly cooked. Sprinkle finely chopped fresh coriander to add a burst of freshness to the dish.

Rolling the Perfect Puri

While the prawns simmer, it's time to prepare the puri. Combine wheat flour, water, and a pinch of salt to form a soft dough. Divide the dough into small balls and roll them out into thin circles. Deep fry these in hot oil until they puff up and become crispy.

The Final Touch: Serving the Prawn Puri

Serve the prawn curry hot, nestled inside the puffed puri. Garnish with a dash of lemon juice and fresh coriander leaves for an added layer of tanginess and freshness.

This simple yet exquisite dish can transform your dining experience, taking you on a journey to the heart of Indian cuisine.
