Prawns Roast / Chemmeen Roast


A tasty side dish with my most favourite seafood item. I have already shared a Prawns Masala very recently, that is more of a semi gravy type. This is a dry dish you can have with appam, roti kind of food items.

  • Onion – 2 big
  • Kashmiri chili powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Green chili – 3
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Coriander powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Ginger garlic paste – 1 teaspoon
  • Curry leaves – 2 sprigs

To Marinate

  • Chili powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Kashmiri chilli powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Turmeric powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Ginger garlic paste – 1 teaspoon
  • Lemon juice – 1 teaspoon
  • Salt


  1. Mix all the ingredients to marinate with little water to make a paste. Add cleaned prawns into it and keep it in the fridge for half an hour.
  2. Heat oil in a nonstick pan and roast the prawns in a low-medium heat until its golden brown. Keep it aside.
  3. To the same pan add sliced onion, curry leaves. When onion turns golden brown,add ginger garlic paste, green chili and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Add Kashmiri chili, turmeric and coriander powder and cook for 2 minutes. Add roasted prawns, and mix well. Cook for another 5 minutes and turn off.
