Note: Large Prawns should be used preferably. I will suggest you to experiment more with the dish using varied items to get mixed in this Chilli Prawn. You can use paneer cut in small equal-sized cubes and fried in oil enough that their softness doesn’t reduce. Add these fried paneer cubes along with the chilli prawn mixture. You can also sprinkle a little red chilli powder or chaat masala on fried paneer.

Nevertheless, you can also experiment with the cheese flakes partially layered over the prepared chilli prawn dish. This will enhance the delicacy of the dish along with your cooking appraisal.

Chilli Prawns are rarely cooked in the home so it will be a good choice when you are arranging a party at the home of your relatives and friends. It will serve as a good starter in lunch or dinner or can be enjoyed with evening tea. You can also enjoy the dish with a glass of wine or whiskey and soft music played in the background will enhance the dish taste during your night alcohol party.
