Take de-veined and shelled tiger prawns and wash them properly.
In a bowl, take turmeric powder, red chilli powder, ginger and garlic paste, crushed peppercorns, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, cardamom and cloves. Mix it well.
Add prawns to the above mixture and let the masala coat the prawns well. Allow it to marinate for 15 – 20 minutes.
Heat a lightly oiled chargrill pan or barbeque on medium-high heat and thread prawns onto 3 – 4 skewers.

Roast it till it develops a golden brown.
You can even add food colour in the marination, but its best to avoid it.
