Loose chilli prawn is an awesome flavourful snack keeping the prawns crisp on the exterior side and soft and juicy inside. Loose chilli prawns are the easiest way to cook spicy prawns and can be done rather quickly as well. In this recipe, first the prawns are batter coated and then deep fried to give a crunch and crispness to the prawns.

This also enables the prawns to hold its texture well when it gets cooked in a spicy chilli masala. The sautéing of prawns in the spicy chilli masala enables the juices to penetrate into the prawns giving it a spicy and tangy taste. Prawns or Shrimps is excellent and delicate seafood next to fish. It blends well other flavours and is fast to cook. It is believed to be the most popular exceptional seafood that is low in calories and saturated fat which makes it a healthier alternative to other milk proteins.

Shrimps come in a varied range of size and colours that include gray, brown, pink and yellowish. When cooked, prawns give a pleasing orange in colour and become opaque. Shrimps can be cooked in various ways, fried, in curry or made into fritters. They can be served for starters, side dish or in main course. You could always make varied variations in preparing shrimp or prawn. Pan fried, stir-fried, deep fried or battered are some of the easiest and quicker methods to prepare the shrimps.

They also best suit as starters or include in an impromptu dinner party. Battered fried or deep fried prawns are extremely exotic, delicious, crispy exterior and on biting are juicing and give a pleasant savour to the palate. The most important or best part is the flavour as they're really tasty when cooked! India's coastal regions have an abundance of seafood, so prawns are prepared in a multitude of ways. Do try this recipe and I am sure you’ll love the sweet, spicy and tangy flavours mixed in one dish.

Shrimps are also an excellent source of low-fat and low-cal protein and are abundant in Vitamin D and good source of Vitamin B12. Shrimp is loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids has anti-inflammatory properties. The nutrient density of this seafood is very high and it is loaded with a variety of vitamins and minerals. They're a great source of Omega3 fatty acids and an excellent way to get your proteins. They're also high in iron, zinc and vitamin E but low in saturated fat. Provided you're not gorging on batter-fried or crumbed and fried prawns, you probably don't even need to worry about the cholesterol levels in them being excessive.
