8 large prawns, clean and deveined
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
3/4 teaspoon Kashmiri red chilli powder

Marinate prawns with salt, turmeric, Kashmiri red chilli powder and pepper powder. Keep aside for half an hour.

Insert a tooth pick (soaked in water) from the head to tail of each prawn ( This will prevent the prawns from curling during cooking ).

Heat oil in tawa or frying pan. Arrange marinated prawns and fry on a slow heat till golden color , while turning the prawns on both the sides so that the spice powders are well coated on the prawns ( Adjust heat low to medium and give enough time so that both the sides are cooked ).
