Prawn Chilly Fry

Prawn Chilly Fry

This is an homestyle prawn chilly fry, funny thing is when mom had come down to Goa we lacked some of the ingredients to do this the exact way we do it at home. So with a minor alterations here is the recipe that is a dish in itself but is also a half way mark to our next recipe 🙂

We din’t have spring onions and we missed out on the turmeric powder. But this prawn chilly fry is perhaps one of the fastest dishes that can be done within 15 minutes when you are ready.

    Have made pan rolls with ground beef, but never with prawns. Definitely going to try this! Sounds very yummy. (Plenty of prawn lovers in my family. I'm going to make sure I hide some away for myself before they all disappear :))
