Pepper Prawn / Pepper Shrimp / Pepper Shrimp Masala

      Neither me nor my hubby were not prawn fans but nowadays we started loving it. This is the second time am cooking prawn and I am in love with the flavour and taste of prawn in gravy. What a wonderful seafood that creates magic.

              I tried prawn for the first time literally like thokku but could not capture as that was my first try. This time I am going for Pepper and cooking almost the same way I cook my Mushroom chicken.

         This is also specially cooked for my friend Pradheepa Chinnaraj who loves seafood like anything. When we go for a buffet, I see only seafood in her plate... So Pepper prawn toast to my seafood crazy girlfriend.
