Prawns is loved by all who eats non vegetarian food. Any type of dish made with prawns will be mouth watering.
This is a simple and delicious prawn masala recipe which is spicy and rich masala laden gravy. This is an easy to make, dry preparation of prawns that doubles as an excellent snack as well as a side dish with the main course. In this the prawns are cooked in onion - tomato and mixed well with the spice powders. You can make this more spicy depending upon your taste level.
