Prawn Country Style Recipe

Prawn country style

 I am sharing today one of my favourite ,spicy recipes.Prawns being something which I have always found very versatile when I wanted to whip up a meal in a jiffy.if the prawns are kept cleaned and deveined in the refrigerator,then this recipe takes only about 15 minutes to cook.
For this recipe the size of the prawns shown in the pic is ideal I find this variety ,which is about 4 inches long before cleaning the best for any dish ,since lobsters are little rubbery and the small shrimps are less fleshy.
This recipe calls for very few ingredients,the main ingredient being onions.I have cooked it in mustard oil but you can choose any other oil.Even refined oil will go well with it.If you love the flavour of curry leaves ,you can also add few curry leaves at the end.This recipe tastes best when it is made dry like shown in the pic,and goes very well with steamed rice or some flavored rice as well.

 So lets get going ,for an awesome meal with the juicy prawns cooked in  hot spices,yet retaining their flavour ,this time not in smooth velvety gravies but with  a very rustic country appeal.Try this out!!!

Take care not to leave the prawns in heat for a long time,or they will turn rubbery
In this recipe though the prawns are deveined ,I still left the shells partially on the prawns for a better colour,they can be easily removed while eating
