Prawns masala fry is a masala coated and marinated prawns fry.
When i say prawns immediately i remember my college days. It was then I had my first prawns. 🙂 My dearie Ramya who is from cuddalore, use to go to her hometown very rarely since it was a long journey for her. We will be waiting for her to come back especially for the yummy prawns her mom use to make. we fight for it and would finish off the whole box in seconds 🙂
Cleaning the prawns
Cleaning the prawns will take a whole lot of time and needs patience. If not properly cleaned may cause upset stomach. When you buy the prawns at the shop, they don’t clean the veins(black thin colored lines inside prawns). To clean the prawns, just slit open prawns a little and pull out the veins out slightly with knife. hold veins tip with your hands and pull out till the end.
