Recipe for Prawn Koliwada: A Unique Dish that has a Mumbaikar Vibe

Apart from its busy lifestyle and commercial importance, the city of Mumbai is noted for its unique variety of food. If you thought that the city only offers you a range of Pav dishes (Vada Pav, Pav Bhaji, Misal Pav and so on), you are wrong. Thanks to the city’s proximity to the coast, you can get different dishes made of seafood as well.

Origin of Prawn Koliwada:

Here, we will share with you the recipe for Prawn Koliwada, which is one of the famous dishes of Mumbai. It originated in the bustling area of Koliwada and was invented by a Punjabi chef. However, the dish does not have a dominant Punjabi tangy taste. It is made of prawns, so you must source it from a well-known seafood export company.


Let us look at the primary ingredients you need to prepare this delicious dish from Mumbai.

  • Prawn (250 grams)
  • Cooking Oil (1 Cup)
  • All-Purpose Flour (1 Tablespoon)
  • Ginger Garlic Paste (1 Tablespoon)
  • Lemon Juice (1 Tablespoon)
  • Gram Flour (2 Tablespoons)
  • Salt (1 Tablespoon)
  • Coriander Powder (1 Tablespoon)
  • Red Chilli Powder (1 Tablespoon)
  • Curd (2 Tablespoons)

Steps for Cooking Prawn Koliwada:

After deveining and washing the prawns, make a mixture to marinate them. Use the Ginger Garlic Paste, Red Chilli Powder, Coriander Powder and Lemon Juice to prepare the marination. Keep the prawns in this mixture for at least 15 to 20 minutes.

After marination, squeeze the extra moisture out of the prawns. Add all-purpose flour, gram flour, lemon juice, curd and cooking oil to prepare a batter. Mix all the spices with the prawns and prepare them for deep-frying.

Check the temperature of the oil in the cooking pot and add the prawns one by one. Maintain a medium temperature throughout the frying process. Take the prawns out of the cooking pot when they achieve a rich golden brown colour on both sides.

Once you are done with all the batches, you can serve them hot. Serve the fried prawns with a dash of green chutney or Chaat Masala.

Now you are ready to enjoy the delectable Prawn Koliwada. It goes great as a starter dish, but you can serve it as a fried item during any big meal. To ensure an unparalleled great taste, you should give importance to sourcing the prawns. Get in touch with a leading seafood export company near you. They are reliable sources who can provide you with raw materials for your dish of the finest quality.
