Use a sharp kitchen scissors to trim off the legs, antennae and the sharp point at the top of the head.Keep the head and shell intact.Make a cut just near the head and the body and pull out the vein. Insert a tooth pick to retain the shape and avoid curling.

Whisk yogurt and gram flour into a smooth paste.Mix all the rest of the ingredients listed including the mustard oil,finely chopped mint leaves and marinate the prawns and keep refrigerated for at least least two hours .
Heat  a grill pan and spray with cooking oil.Place the prawns and cook three minutes on each side or until crispy. If you are using bamboo skewers thread three to four in each and lay flat on the pan. When one side is crispy,turn to the other side. Serve with lemon wedges.
