A twist on the popular Indian favourite 'Tandoori Chicken'. I'm quite fond of the chicken variation but I just love what the recipe does to prawns. Most of you may not have a tandoor (outdoor clay oven) so just use a regular oven. Or better still, barbecue the prawns on a wintry night and serve with cold beer!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean and devein the prawns. Marinate in a mixture of the vinegar, salt and pepper. Refrigerate for an hour.
  2. Stir the ginger-garlic paste and garam masala into the yoghurt. Add the mustard oil and cumin powder and mix well.
  3. Drain the prawns of the first mixture and marinate in the second. Refrigerate for another hour.
  4. Skewer and cook in a tandoor or oven, turning occasionally and basting with melted butter. Alternatively, cook on the barbecue grill.
  5. Remove when the prawns are almost cooked (but not fully, since they will cook further with the internal heat). Serve with onion rings.
