Prawn Vada / Iral Vada is very simple and easy to make. The good thing is we are only doing a shallow fry. Hopefully consumes very less oil. I served these prawn vada with Mint Chutney. There is another version of prawn vada available in my space. If you are on a paleo diet then this Prawn vada and Mint chutney is a great combination and can be had as a one time meal.

- Wet your palm take about 2 tablespoon of prawn batter and flatten them in your palm.
- Place the patties into the hot oil and cook one side.
- When one side is done flip sides.
- When both sides are cooked take them from oil. Serve them with minut Chutney.
- The number of vada completely depends on the size that we are tolling them into.

- Make thin Patties so that it is easy to shallow fry.
- Do not add water while blender. The prawns are full of water and that is enough for blending.
