Spring Onion Bhaji with Prawns

As simple as can be, the recipe for this Spring Onion Bhaji with Prawns was shared to me by my friend Betty Pires. It is a bhaji preparation where the prawns retain their flavours and the crunchy spring onions complement the prawns well. It can be served as a side or eaten with chapatis.

Serves: 2 Persons

Prep. Time: 15 Mins.

Cooking Time: 10 to 12 Mins.

Ingredients:

  • Spring Onion – 2 medium sized bunches
  • Prawns (cleaned & deveined) – 100 gms (cleaned)
  • Light Green Chillies (slit) – 1 to 2
  • Coconut (grated) – 2 tbsp.
  • Oil – 1 to 2 tbsp.
  • Salt – ½ tsp. or to taste

Step 1:     Apply ¼ tsp. salt to the prawns and keep aside.

Step 2:     Wash the spring onion and drain well. Cut and separate the white and green parts. Chop each of them fine and keep separately.

Step 3:     Heat the oil in a pan and add the chopped spring onion whites. Sauté on medium heat for 30 seconds. Then add the prawns and sauté for another minute till they change colour.

Step 4:     Add the green chillies and sauté for another 30 seconds. Reduce the heat and then add the chopped spring onion greens. Mix well. Add ¼ tsp. salt and cook covered on low heat for 5 to 6 minutes.

Step 5:     Later, open the lid and sprinkle the grated coconut over the bhaji. Cook covered for another minute.

Note:

  • Do the overcook the vegetable as it will lose its crunch.
