Beer Batter Prawns is a light and crispy appetizer which can be served with drinks like cocktails or mocktails for parties. Beer should be added while making the batter and immediately the prawns should be deep fried. These crispy golden fried prawns are a perfect finger food. You can serve these prawns with mayo or any type of dipping sauce. These prawns should be served hot as it turns crispy on the outside and soft inside. I have added pizza seasoning and garlic powder to this recipe. However, if these ingredients are not available then you can add a teaspoon of garlic paste while making batter.
