Prawns Gravy Recipe - Prawn Curry Recipe

Prawns Curry
Prawns Curry / Prawn Gravy is one the regular dish we make whenever we get prawns. But we dont get prawns often so this time I made sure to click and post it. I realised I can cook nonveg if someone cleans and gives me :) This time I made the prawns curry getting the instructions from Amma.
I havent spoken more about sharmi clicks here after announcing that I am starting a P365 blog. I should admit it is hectic and on the other side all the more enjoyable than I thought. Having the camera sticking to me all the time like a baby kangaroo sometimes a burden too with the bulky camera bag hanging on one side and holding mittu on the other side...eyes wandering  for framing a pic :)Today marks the 100th day.....long way more to go!
