Prawns Spicy Masala Roast -Dry

           Prawns also referred as Shrimp is a rich source of protein , according to my opinion,it's a bit more tastier compared to fish food.Might be due to their rich protein content make them even more tastier compared with other fish varieties.So people who have to take care of their cholesterol levels,should definitely have an eye while having prawns.Generally prawns are sweetish by nature,so some spicy masala will go well with them.It's simple and easy to prepare.This Prawn roast can accompany your curd rice,rasam rice and even sambar
