Prawn Fry Recipe

Prawn Fry happened to be one of my first time successful experiments...I patted myself after making this prawn fry as I am slowly gaining confidence cooking nonveg dishes.I usually make prawn gravy so this prawn fry was a welcoming change....Hubby and amma gave a thumps up to this prawn fry.We had it with rice, fish kuzhambu and it was a great combo.Do try this and let me know the feedback, vegetarians you can try this with mushroom,baby corn etc.
