How To Make Prawns Roast

Kerala is very famous for their prawns dishes.  This is a dry prawns roast recipe.  It is very easy to make and uses very few ingredients which are readily available in almost all houses.  When you are in a hurry and want to make some non vegetarian dish, then, this is the right one you can go for.  Apart from the marination process, it takes hardly 20 – 25 minutes for the entire preparation.  But always take care to remove the vein the prawns before using.  Otherwise, there may be some health problems.  I usually make this when I have guest at home and have to prepare a lot of dishes.  This can be served along for lunch along with rice, sambar, thoran, poriyal or mezhukkupuratti and pappadam.
