This Recipe Was Inspired By My Sweet Sister By Law Nazia Who Was Kind Enough To Help Me Out On This One???

Now Let’s Get To The Recipe.
This Base Is Made Of Wheat Flour,Coconut Pulp That’s Basically The Residue When You Make Fresh Coconut Milk,Baking Soda 1/2 Tsp per cup & Salt.Mix The Same Quantity Of Flour & Coconut Pulp,Add Water & Form Into A Dough.Do Not Over Knead.Drizzle Some Oil,Cover & Let This Rest For Atleast An Hour.
Prep The Prawns By Half Cleaning Them:Leave The Tail & Head If You Prefer.I Just Had These Prawns Already Cleaned In My Fridge So Used Them As It Is.
Season The Prawns With Salt,Pepper,&Chilli Pwd
You Could Use Toppings Of Your Choice But These Are What I Used:

While The Dough Is Resting Make The Tamarind Chutney.You Could Even Make This Ahead.
You Could Even Use Leftover Gravy If You Prefer Instead Of Tamarind Chutney

Other Toppings:
Finely Chopped Onions
Finely Chopped Green Chillies
Finely Chopped Carrots
Fresh Corriander Leaves

This Method Is A Little Different To The Original Method Bcz Sometimes The Prawns Tend To Come Off When Frying.This Way Theyr More Secure,No Compromises On The Fabulous Taste Though??????

Place Them On A Lined Tray & Refrigerate Till You Want To DeepFry These Babies

After Deep Fried Assemble On A Plate & Serve With The Variety Of Toppings……
