About burnt garlic sauce
The burnt garlic butter sauce is a common sauce that’s made in many restaurants. Addition of prawns has taken the taste of the sauce to another level. I can only say it’s utterly delicious! I have used buttermilk (the milk that was left after extraction of homemade butter) here to make the sauce. You can also use milk, which tastes as delicious.
I have made burnt garlic prawn pasta using Weikfield’s Duram wheat Penne pasta. Since this isn’t maida makes it a healthier alternative to regular maida ones.

How to make burnt garlic prawn pasta
- First, marinate the prawns with a little salt and pepper for half an hour.
- Next, boil the pasta in the boiling water until it’s cooked. Keep it aside.
- Take a fry pan, heat a teaspoon of butter and fry the prawns for a few minutes. Keep it aside.
- To the same pan add rest of the butter and crushed garlic. Saute them till the garlic turns brown and slightly burnt.
- Add wheat flour, roast it till the flour gets aromatic and cooked.
- Slowly add buttermilk and continuously stir the mixture to form a smooth lump free sauce.
- Once the sauce begins to boil add grated cheese, black pepper, salt, chilly flakes, boiled corn and the fried prawns. Cook them for a minute or 2 and the sauce is ready.
- On the plate take pasta, pour the burnt garlic prawn sauce over the pasta. Serve hot with some more chilly flakes for a delicious hearty meal.
- Do not over cook the pasta. Do not add oil to pasta water or after cooking the pasta as that will prevent the sauce from sticking to the pasta.
- Fry the prawns only for 2-3 minutes because overcooking makes the prawn meat to turn tough.
- Addition of corn is optional, you can also use jalapenos, yellow bell peppers or anything that doesn’t have a very strong flavour to over power the flavor of prawns and garlic.
