Prawn with Red Pepper

I have made something similar to this long time back and named it as 'Salt and Pepper Prawn'. Was trying to recreate the same with some Red Bell Peppers, and I was pleasantly surprised to see the change in taste.  


  • Medium Prawns - 500 gms, peeled and deveined
  • Salt - As required
  • Cracked black pepper - 1 tbsp.
  • Corn flour - 4 tbsp.
  • Butter - 1 tbsp.
  • Onion - 1, thinly sliced
  • Red Bell Pepper - 1 , thinly sliced
  • Green chilli - 2-3 , thinly sliced

Combine cornflour, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the prawns and toss well to coat all the prawns.

In a large non stick frying pan, heat the butter and then add the prawns in batches stirring occasionally. Cook for 3 - 4 minutes or until they turn pink in color.

 In the same pan, add the thinly sliced onion. Fry till they become soft, then add chopped green chilli.

Add the chopped bell pepper with a pinch of salt and stir fry for 2 - 3 minutes. You may need to add some butter if required.

Add the fried prawns to the pan and mix well till the masala is coated well onto the prawns. 

Adjust the seasoning and serve as snack or side dish.
