What kind of shrimp do I need for Air Fryer Prawn Koliwada – Air Fryer Spicy Shrimp Koliwada?

These days, you can get very good quality frozen peeled/deveined shrimp and that’s what I use on a day to day basis. (31-40 count per pound), that is the large-sized shrimp is what I have used. You can use whatever you have handy, just make sure, you follow the cup measurements. 

In order to thaw the frozen shrimp I placed them in a bowl of cold tap water in the sink and kept the water running gently for 5 minutes. When thawed pat the shrimp dry with a napkin.

How do I make this recipe?

Firstly, make the batter. Mix Gram flour/chickpea flour (besan), rice flour, ground cumin, red chili powder, Kashmiri chili powder, 3 tbsp oil, ginger garlic paste, salt, Greek yogurt, and lemon juice.

Moreover, add in the shrimp and mix well. Let the shrimp marinate for 30 minutes.

When you are ready to cook, grease your  Air Fryer  basket with 1 tbsp oil. I grease mine by rubbing, brushing, or spraying, a little bit of oil on the bottom grate. Then, follow your air fryer directions for preheating to 350°F for 5 minutes. When it’s preheated, working in batches, place the shrimp in a single layer. Air fry for 7 minutes, flip it and air fry for another 3 minutes. If you like it browned further you can air fry for another 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and drizzle with chaat masala.

What do I serve this shrimp with?

  • It can be served as an appetizer. 
  • It can be served with naan (Indian flat bread) as a part of a meal.
  • Served as a side dish.
