White sesame seeds, as required
Prawns (kolambi/jhinga), shelled and deveined, 250 grams

Garlic, 2-3 cloves
Onion, 1 medium
Fresh coriander leaves, chopped, 1 tablespoon

Place the bread slices on a flat surface and cut roundels with a cookie cutter. Cut a few square pieces too.
Grind garlic, onion, coriander leaves, green chillies, prawns and salt to a coarse paste and transfer into a bowl.
Heat sufficient oil in a deep pan.
Spread the paste on bread pieces and dab them with damp fingers.
Spread sesame seeds on a plate and roll the bread pieces, prawn side facing downwards so that the sesame seeds cover the prawn paste completely.
Gently slide these into the hot oil and deep fry till golden and crisp.
Drain on absorbent paper.
Arrange them on a serving plate, garnish with a fresh mint sprig and serve hot with tomato ketchup or a chutney of your choice.
