Mastering the Art of Prawn Pickle🍤

Pickle enthusiasts are often on the lookout for unique and tantalizing variations to add to their culinary repertoire. Among the myriad of pickle options, prawn pickles stand out as a flavorful delicacy that combines the rich taste of prawns with the tanginess of pickling spices.


  1. Cleaning and deveining the prawns: Start by cleaning the prawns thoroughly and removing the veins. This step ensures that the prawns are free from impurities and ready for pickling.
  2. Marinating the prawns: Marinate the prawns with salt, turmeric, and a dash of vinegar. Allow them to sit for a while to absorb the flavors.
  3. Frying the prawns: Heat oil in a pan and fry the marinated prawns until they are golden brown. This step adds a crispy texture to the prawns and enhances their flavor.
  4. Preparing the pickling mixture: In a separate pan, heat oil and add mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, cumin seeds, garlic, ginger, and red chili flakes. Cook until the spices release their aroma.
  5. Adding vinegar and sugar: Pour vinegar into the pan and add sugar to balance the acidity. Allow the mixture to simmer until it thickens slightly.
  6. Combining prawns and pickling mixture: Once the pickling mixture is ready, add the fried prawns to it and stir well to ensure that the prawns are evenly coated with the spices.
  7. Storing the pickle: Transfer the prawn pickle into sterilized jars and allow it to cool completely before sealing the jars. Store the pickle in a cool, dark place for a few days to allow the flavors to develop fully.
