PRAWN HARIYALI GRILLED (Grilled prawn in fresh herb pesto)


  • 500 prawn , deshelled and cleaned
  • ½ cup coriander leaves fresh
  • ¼ cup mint leaves fresh
  • 5 pods Garlic
  • ¼ cup curd Thick
  • 4 - 5 chilies (Adjust as per to taste) green
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tbsps besan (Gram flour)
  • to taste salt
  • ½ cup bell pepper Assorted
  • ½ wedge Onion cup
  • handful Cherry tomato (optional) a
  • masala . Chat to sprinkle on top


  • Put chopped fresh coriander,mint leaves,curd,garlic,Green chillies,garam masala,salt to a blender. Blend till smooth. Don't add any extra water.
  • In a pan on medium heat roast gram flour till fragrant and light golden in colour.
  • In a container with lid put the prawns,the green paste,gram flour,assorted pepper,Onion and tomatoes. Mix well,refrigerate to marinate at least for 2 hours.
  • 20 minutes before grilling take the marinated prawns out of the refrigerator.
  • Heat a iron griddle pan. Spread 1 tbsp oil/butter. Once it is really hot, pick only the prawns from marinade.Arrange them on the hot pan. let it grill for 2-3 minutes each side. (I would suggest to grill prawns in batches for even cooking). the prawns should be cooked done with beautiful charred effect. Note : It is better to grill prawn and veggies separately,to avoid over cooking of prawn. Over cooking results in rubber like prawns.
  • At the end transfer all the veggies along with the leftover marinade. Grill till they are half done(I like them a bit crunchy) and look charred.
  • Sprinkle generous amount of chat masala and serve hot.
