Prawn hariyali

Thanks again, I am gonna try this very soon 🙂 

Prawns(big) 15-20
Coriander leaves 1/2 cup
Pudina(mint) leaves 1/4 cup
Ginger 1″ piece
Garlic 2
Garam masala 1/2 tea spn
Cumin powder 1/2 tea spn
Yogurt(thick) 1 tbl spn
Green chillies 2-3
Chaat masala 1/2 tea spn
Turmeric a pinch

PS: The mint leaves which I found here have a very strong taste and smell compared to the pudina leaves we got in India. If that is the case, reduce the amount of mint leaves(you can just add 2-3 leaves instead of 1/4th cup).

Grind coriander leaves, pudina, ginger, garlic to a very smooth paste without adding water. Add turmeric, garam masala, cuming powder, yogurt and salt. Mix well with a spoon. Apply this mixture on prawns and leave it for around half an hour (If the mixture becomes thin, the prawns don’t get the uniform coating and the taste is lost, so be careful not to add water).
Preheat the oven to 400F. Keep the prawns on a greased oven proof dish and bake them for 30-40mins.
If you don’t have an oven, heat a tea spn of oil in a heavy bottomed pan and add the prawns. Cook on a low flame till the prawns are completely done. This version takes less time compared to baking in oven.
Sprinkle chaat masala on prawns and serve.

Serves : 3
Preparation time : 50min
