Last week, on calling my regular fish vendor to order, I was told that he’s out of station on a family emergency. Naturally my next option was to order online. When I saw the small soft shell prawns, the first thought that came into my mind were Prawn Pickle and Prawn Stir Fry. I was taken aback a bit when the order arrived. Though I prepared for small prawns, little did I expect them to be tiny. Shelling 1 kg of those would result in breaking my back. Next option? I totally scrapped the idea of making Pickle and decided of making just the stir fry. It looked like stir fry, smelled like stir fry. On tasting, I was a bit disappointed. All I could taste were the shells. I couldn’t possibly serve it to my boys. Time for some damage control. I pulsed the prawns, mixed with rest of cutlet ingredients and Voila !! Prawn Cutlets ready.
Though I had used Stir fried Prawns to make the cutlets, the recipe I’m giving is of fresh prawns. The process remains pretty much the same.
