SKEWER the prawns from tail to head on wooden skewers. Mix all the
ingredients for the marinade and evenly rub the skewered prawns with this
marinade. Keep aside for 30 minutes. Sieve flour and rice flour separately
into a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients for the batter and one litre ice
cold water. Whisk to obtain a lumpy batter.

Refrigerate till required. Heat oil in a kadai over medium heat. Add a few
drops of batter and, as soon as the batter droplets come to the surface,
dip skewered prawns in the batter, and deep fry for three minutes. Drain
and evenly brush with the first topping Then liberally sprinkle the second
topping on the prawns. Finally glaze it in the broiler (or under the
salamander) for a minute. Remove skewers and keep aside. Arrange prawns on
a platter and serve with warm sauteed juliennes of carrot, potato, pumpkin
and beans.

NOTES : Indians prepare prawn pakoras in a hundred different ways. We
decided to substitute the besan batter with a tempura-style batter and then
coated the whole thing with onions, tomatoes, etc.
