Prawns Pakoda/Chemmeen Pakoda

As I have mentioned earlier in my posts that one of my family's  favorite sea food is prawns.We like the addition of prawns in any recipes like snacks,fillings or curries.This is one such yummy snack which we all love.
Prawns            12-15 large(cleaned)
Onion                 2 large (finely chopped)
Egg white           of 1 egg
Green Chillies     3 (finely chopped)
Ginger paste        3/4 tsp
Garlic paste         1/2 tsp
Curry leaves         a few chopped
Baking powder     1/8 tsp
Turmeric powder   1/4 tsp
APF/Maida         5-6 tbsp(heaped)
Corn flour           4-5 tbsp(heaped)
Salt                    as needed
Water                 as needed
Oil                                  for deep frying

-Clean and wash the prawns well.Cut each into 2-3 pieces(according to the size of the prawns).
-In a bowl add all the ingredients except the prawns and oil.Mix well and make a thick batter.Add water if its dry.(see image below)
-Check the salt and then add the prawn pieces and mix again.
-Now heat oil in a kadayi/wok .
-When the oil turns hot slowly drop this mixture little by little using your fingers.
-Cook till both sides turn golden brown.
-You can serve these with tomato ketchup or any sauce you prefer and of course with a cup of hot tea.
