Servings~ 3 adults

NOTES
* I have used fresh prawns here,you can use frozen ones.
* You can add or omit the last pepper powder in masala.This is moderately spicy version,if you feel to reduce the spices then omit the last part of pepper powder.
* If you don't like the cumin flavor,you may omit or reduce it too.
* If you wish to omit the soy sauce,then feel free to do so.Adjust the salt accordingly and also dry it up on high flame so that the fry becomes brownish in color.
