Chemmeen Vada / Prawn Balls

Eid Mubarak to all readers!
Hope you had a great spiritual treat during this Ramadan. Now all of you would be busy planning and preparing a delicious Eid meal.. Here we normally make a chicken biriyani, which is the easiest, serves along with raita , pudina chammanthi or some pickle.We would meet so many relatives on Eid day, that is the happiest part, I think.
Here is an easy snack for you to serve joyfully in the eid evening.. Enjoy!

Ingredients used,
prawns 1 cup cleaned
onion 1 medium size
ginger paste 1 tsp
garlic paste 1 tsp
pepper powder 1/2
green chilly 1 or as per taste
bread slice 1
rice powder 2 tsp
egg 1
curry leaves few
coriander leaves few

How I Prepared,
Apply salt on prawns, steam it for 10 minutes.
Allow to cool.
Crush it in a grinder.
Crush chopped onion,curry leaves and green chilly too.
Make bread crumbs using the bread slice.
Break egg into a bowl.
Mix the crushed ingredients with chopped coriander leaves, salt,rice powder, bread crumbs,garlic ginger paste and egg.
Apply little oil on palms, make small balls.
Deep fry these in oil.
