  • 15 Big Prawns
  • 2 cups oil for deep frying
  • 4 teaspoon Salt

For Marination:

  • 2 teaspoon Black Pepper Powder
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

For Beer Batter:

  • 3/4 cup chilled beer
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour/maida
  • 1/4 cup cornflour
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 2 teaspoon pizza seasoning
  • 2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cooking soda


  • To prepare beer batter prawns, let us start by first cleaning the prawns.
  • Wash the prawns, discard the heads and de-vein. Remove the cover by leaving the tip of tails intact. Then make a slit on the back of the prawn till it sits flat. It should almost look similar to a butterfly.

Now let us make the beer batter:

  • Take a mixing bowl and add all-purpose flour, cornflour and other powders.
  • Now add beer little at a time and whisk to make thick batter. Add salt to taste and mix well.

Let us deep fry the beer batter coated prawns:

  • Now heat a kadai and add oil.
  • Hold the prawn on the tail and dip it in the batter. Drain away the excess batter and gently drop the batter coated prawn in oil. Deep fry in batches till it turns golden brown for about 3-4 minutes by turning on both sides.


Serve with mayo or sauce of your choice.
