Last Wednesday, I decided to make full meals for the dinner.  I made vegetarian dishes & when pravin returned back home he strongly denied to have the brinjal fry for sambar.  Finally, after a long arguments I made this spicy prawn fry with all the spices I have.  I cant believe it was too good & perfect for rice and rotis.

  2. Onion - 7 nos
  3. Tomato - 1 no
  4. Black pepper corn - 1 tbsp
  5. Red chillies - 3 nos
  6. Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  7. Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
  8. Cinnamon stick - 1 no
  9. Cloves - 1 no
  10. Cardamom - 1 no
  11. Corriander seeds - 1 tbsp
  12. Curry leaves - 2 tbsp
  13. Ginger piece - 1/2 inch
  14. Garlic pods - 3 to 4 nos
  15. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
