Chilli Prawns/Shrimps

I was inspired by a friend who had this recently on her birthday at restaurant and she described the taste so well that I actually felt the taste in my mouth. After a little online research and considering hubby’s opinion, who is a big fan of sea food prepared this dish and it was beyond heaven! Ah, those Spicy, Crunchy bites disappeared in no time and we both loved eating it.

      It's easy to prepare gets done in less than 20 minutes. Sea food lovers must try this. Though am not big on sea food loved these bites. Recipe is sure to please kids and grown ups. So let’s get cooking, hope you will enjoy!


For frying
250 gm shrimps/Prawns (peeled and deveined)
1 tbsp rice flour
Oil for deep fry

1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic minced
2 green chillies, slit
1 medium onion, cubed
½ tsp pepper powder
1 tsp chilli powder
2 tbsp soya sauce
2 tsp corn starch
Coriander leaves
Salt to taste


Step 1: Heat oil in small wok for deep frying. In a bowl mix rice flour, 2 pinches salt, ½ tsp chilli powder and deep fry until crispy (3-4 minutes in medium heat) and set aside. Mix cornstarch with ¼ cup of water.

Step 2: Heat 1tbsp oil in a pan or you can use same pan transferring excess oil, add minced garlic and saute. Add green chillies, onion and sauté for 2 minutes. 

Step 3: Add pepper powder, chilli powder, salt, soya sauce sauté it. Add corn starch, shrimps and sauté until well coated in sauce and turn off. Garnish with coriander and serve with lemon wedges.


  • This can be served also with noodles
  • As I always say spices can be adjusted based on your spice level
  • Garnish with coriander leaves/spring onion
  • Green bell pepper can be added, add along with onions.
  • Make salt adjustment carefully as it is used twice and soya sauce is also used
