Sungta thalsan

I adapted this recipe from my Papa’s sister’s mother-in-law.My Aunt always praises about this authentic recipe and I thought of trying it .This dish is filled with the aroma of garlic and it is very tasty to eat the whole garlic.The masala is same as of normal fish fry.Thalsan or thalasina is mostly prepared with garlic.Whenever any dish is seasoned with garlic I like to pick the garlic and eat.And we GSB’s make maximum use of the garlic.Sungta means prawns.Goes well as a side dish or a starter.

Prawns-25,medium sized
Chilly powder-2 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Asafoetida-1/4 tsp
Bengal gram flour-2 tsp
Rice flour-3 tsp
Salt- to taste

Other ingredients:
Oil-2 tbsp
Lime- 1/2,juice
Garlic-10-12,peeled and slightly crushed


  1. Marinate the prawns with all the ingredients mentioned above for 4-5 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet,add garlic and fry slightly,add the  marinated prawns and saute it for 8-9 minutes.
  3. Cover it  with a lid and cook for 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Don’t over cook the prawns or else it will turn rubbery.
  5. Squeeze lime juice and serve.
