250g - Tiger Prawns
2 tbsp - Plain Yoghurt
1/2 tsp - Turmeric Powder
1 tsp - Amchoor (mango powder)
1 tep - Salt
1 tbsp - Kastoori Methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
2 tbsp - Fresh coriander/cilantro (finely chopped)
1 tsp - Garlic (crushed) FRESH IDEALLY!
1 tsp - Ginger (crushed) FRESH IDEALLY TOO!
1 tbsp - Fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp - Fresh lime juice
3-4 - Fresh green chillis (finely chopped)
2 tbsp mustard oil
For the Marinade use all the above ingredients minus the PRAWNS
Put all the above in a large bowl
Grab a spoon and mix up really well, until you all is incorporated
Taste for balance. Checking for salt and heat levels here.
1. SOAK approx 10 wooden skewers in cold water for at least two hours prior to cooking. Overnight is best to avoid burning 🔥
Pre Shelled and De veined: Wash 2-3 times until the are plump and grit free then drain off and pat down with kitchen towel/tissue until the prawns are dry. Then put aside until the next step.
If your prawns are not already pre prepped:
Remove all the shell from the prawns
Make on the back of the prawns you'll see a dark line. This needs to be removed.
Carefully make a shallow slice down the line of the back of the prawn along the dark line
Remove the vein/dark line
Wash all the prawns thoroughly
Pat down with kitchen towel/tissue until the prawns are dry and free from excess water
place in a bowl and put aside
Now the marinade is made and the prawns are clean!
Add the prawns to the marinade mix
Skewer the prawns (3 per skewer) Leave space between each prawn
Place on a deep baking tray. Avoid the prawns touching any surface
Pour the Mustard Oil into the left over Marinade and mix in well
Use a Baking/Cooking brush to coat the prawns with the oil. Lightly glaze them
Put the tray into a pre heated (180C) oven (middle of the oven)
After approx 10 minutes, reglaze the prawns with the oil marinade
Cook for approx 5-10 minutes more (check the prawns are fully Cooked)
TIP FOR A LITTLE EXTRA CHARRING
Take one skewer at a time and run over a naked flame on the stove (as in the video). You'll need literally a few seconds per skewer to achieve a #TANDOORI
Garnish with Chopped Coriander and Serve with your favourite hot sauce!
