Prawns Rava Fry | Prawns Starter Recipe
Yes, one more recipe with prawns. This time I have used big prawns. I am a hard core seafood lover. Now this blog followers must be knowing my love for prawns.
I had this whole plate for lunch. They were so tasty, crispy that I could have eaten one more plate..:)
Actually, I thought prawns fry is the best dish to go with sweet chili sauce I made. So the plan was to make ‘Tom Yum Goong‘ soup. I went to a market and got some big prawns and some medium ones for soup. As a part of soup preparation I made this ‘Sweet Chili Sauce’. Next day, I thought, now sweet chili sauce is already there so to go with it some spicy, crispy dish should be made. That is how I ended up making this tasty Prawns Fry.
For making this dish, I had cut prawns fully from the back side so that I got this butterfly shape for prawns. They cooked fast within 10 minutes. I suggest you to try this dish with sweet chili sauce. It is an awesome combination.
