1
To make the herb chutney, place all of the ingredients except the mayonnaise in a food processor and blitz to form a smooth paste, adding a very small amount of water if necessary
2
Transfer to a mixing bowl, add the mayonnaise and check the seasoning. If you store this chutney in the fridge, it will keep its bright green colour for 2 days
  • 1 tbsp of mayonnaise
3
For the khichdi, heat the oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in a pan and add the cumin seeds. As they splutter, add the garlic and sauté for a minute over a medium heat. Add the ginger, chilli and red onion and sauté for 2 minutes
4
Add the turmeric and rice and cook for 2 minutes longer. Pour in the warmed vegetable stock, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the stock has been absorbed and the rice is almost done
5
Add the yoghurt, season with salt and continue cooking until the rice is tender. Finally, stir in the second tablespoon of butter and chopped coriander
6
To make the crispy prawns, beat the eggs, coriander, chilli powder, cornflour and some salt with 2 tablespoons of ice-cold water to make a smooth batter. The cold water helps to keep the batter crisp
7
Heat the oil to 180°C in a deep-fryer or a deep saucepan (if you don’t have a thermometer, check it is hot enough by adding a cube of bread to the oil. It should start to bubble and fry, but not burn, the moment it has been added)
  • vegetable oil
8
Dip the prawns in the batter without coating the tails, then drain off the excess and deep-fry in the hot oil until crisp. Drain on kitchen paper
  • 8 prawns, de-veined tail with the shells left on
9
To serve, pipe or drizzle the herb chutney on to 4 plates and place a 6cm ring mould in the centre. Spoon in the khichdi, then remove the mould and place 2 prawns on the rice
