  • Rice 1 tbsp
  • Garam masala powder 1½ tsps

  • Clean and devein prawns and put them in a bowl. Add 1 tsp turmeric powder and 1 tsp salt and mix well. Cover the bowl and keep it in the refrigerator to marinate for 1 hour.

  • Add the prawns to this mixture, mix well so that masala coats every prawn completely. Let it rest for 20-30 minutes.
  • Preheat the airfryer to 180º C. Lightly grease the basket.
  • Cut the edges of the bread slices and roll them with a rolling pin to flatten them into thin sheets.
  • Keep one marinated prawn in the centre of each slice and roll to shape into cylinders. Seal the edges with beaten egg.
  • Keep the rolled prawns in the basket, fit it to the airfryer and cook them for 10 minutes or till the bread turns brown and crisp.
  • Take them out of the airfryer, arrange them on a serving platter, garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
