Thanks for this recipe! But there`s one doubt. Should one not marinate the prawns before frying?


It`s a tasty dish but very poor listing of ingredients. Mustard seeds and curry leaves are not even mentioned in the list of ingredients.

This recipe came out very well and it goes well with rice and curry. I did not add water as some water comes out of the shrimp.
