Kerala is known for the delicious sea food dishes and today's special recipe is one of the most popular Kerala dish- Prawns Fry. My son is not a big fan of sea food but this one dish he instantly fell in love with. We had been to Kerala to meet my best friend who stays abroad and had visited her home town in Dec last year. This dish was introduced to us by her mom who just loves cooking. We exchanged some recipes and this is one of her recipes which I tried within a week after returning from Kerala. This is a deep fried dish with very less ingredients. Thank you Muktha Aunty for sharing this recipe.
Fresh Prawns - Cleaned - 15 medium sized
Haldi/ Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Red Chilli powder - 1 and 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Rice flour for coating

Aunty makes a fine paste of red chillies and salt. She stores in refrigerator to use this for other dishes too. I used red chilli powder instead.
1. Make a paste of Red chilli powder, haldi and Salt.
2. Apply this to the cleaned prawns and marinate for atleast 10-15 mins.
