Impossible to resist and super indulgent, they will melt in your mouth.

Ingredients:

  • Shrimp/ prawns – 35-40 pieces
  • Bell pepper (green red yellow) – 1 each small size
  • Onions – 1 small
  • Skewers – 7-8
  • Oil

Marinade:

  • Ginger-garlic paste – 1 tsp
  • Red Chili powder – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Lemon juice – 2-3 tbsp
  • Hung curd – 2 tbsp
  • Kashmiri red chili powder – 1 tsp
  • Coriander powder – 1 tsp
  • Cumin powder – 1 tsp
  • Garam masala powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Oil – 2 tbsp

Method:

  • Wash the shrimp thoroughly with water. Transfer it to a colander to drain all the water out.
  • You can use bell peppers and onions and cut into cubes. This is totally your choice. I haven’t used any today 🙂
  • Mix all the ingredients of the marinade in a bowl and make a smooth paste.
  • Apply the marinade on the shrimp and (veggies if any)
  • Arrange the shrimp on a skewer (along with bell peppers and onions). Remember to soak the bamboo skewers in water for 20 minutes to prevent the skewer from getting Burnt.
  • Preheat the grill at 450-degree Fahrenheit.
  • Brush oil on the shrimp and on the grilling plate to prevent the shrimp from sticking to it. You can also use a pan instead of a grill.
  • Grill the shrimp for 5 minutes on each side. Make sure the grill is really hot. This also prevents the shrimp from sticking to the grill.
  • Serve hot with mint chutney. Serve it as a starter at lunch or dinner or make shrimp/prawn tikka at a barbecue party.
