Grind the chopped raw prawns along with all the ingredients numbered 2 to a coarse mixture. Transfer to a bowl and add enough salt. Grease your palms with little oil and make small balls from the mixture. Flatten into thin discs and deep fry in oil in 3 – 4 batches, until browned, about 2 – 3 minutes on each side. Serve warm as is or with rice. Its easy and yummy, do try it out!

You can also pan fry them but fry at medium-low heat and cover with a lid for a few minutes in between so that the inside is also cooked well.
