Recipe for Crispy prawn bread
Bread slices(cut the edges and cut into diagonally into triangle shapes)- 16 triangle shaped slices(You may have to use 8 bread slices)
Prawns(deshelled and deveined)- 1 cup(heads should be removed)
Onion- 1 small piece(1/4 th of a medium sized onion)
Garlic- 6 flakes
Ginger- 1 small piece
Green chillies- 3 no.s
Pepper powder- 1 tsp

Salt as per taste
Refined oil- For frying
Processed cheese- 1 cup(grated)(I used Amul processed cheese and for this recipe only processed cheese works)
You also need absorbent papers or kitchen tissues for this recipe.
Method of Preparation
Grind Prawns, onion,garlic ,ginger,green chillies,pepper powder ,garam masala and salt ,to a paste.
Reserve this paste.
Over one side of the bread slices spread this paste to 1 inch thickness.
Meanwhile heat oil in a saucepan. Deep fry these slices ( It just requires less than a minute and prawns gets cooked easily..Make sure that it is fully dipped in hot oil. It normally floats over the oil ,so use a spoon to make it dipped. This is done to ensure prawn is cooked well)
Place these immediately over absorbent papers.
Spread grated cheese over it immediately while it is hot.(Otherwise it wouldn’t get melted)
