Here I come with an another prawn recipe for fish lovers, look at the pictures, its so tempting is it. Yes, that too this recipe is so tasty when you make it with small prawns like the one I used, this is a dry fry recipe with coconut and so it goes well with rice. The more time you marinate it adds more taste to the dish as well. As you tried my other prawn dishes; I bet you will like this recipe for sure.

As the prawns cooking time is less, this recipe is a good choice if you are in a hurry to cook something quick when you have guests at home,that too if you get the cleaned frozen prawns like the one I got it.When I started doing it, I wasn’t so sure about the taste but after its done, it was so good, and we had a very special dinner. Look at the cute little prawns, tempting is it. Here you go with the making.
