Indian Prawn Papads Recipe with a Kick

December 10, 2011

This morning on Saturday Kitchen Rick Stein was cooking up a spicy treat from the seductive sunny Indian beaches of Goa with an ice cold beer.

He was cooking up a traditional snack to go with his beer called papads I think, cooked like a mini spring rolls if you’ve only got English ingredients.

I tried making the dish and they turned out amazing so after not finding the recipe online, I thought I’d post it here. No measurements, but it’s about a handful unless stated.

1) Start by heating oil in a hot wok and add finely chopped onions until brown.
2) Add chopped tomatoes squeezing it into almost a paste until it’s really quite dry.
3) Throw in some chopped prawns with some very finely chopped green chillies without their seeds, ginger and garlic.
4) Kick up the heat with a pinch of chilli powder, a bigger pinch of turmeric and a little cajan pepper and plenty sea salt.
5) Finally add the juice of one or two limes and set aside to cool. Then the filling is made.

Then wrap in filo pastry and deep fry (190 oC) for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Done.
