Fried Prawns Masala | Chemmeen Varutha Masala

Prawns are all time my favorite among sea foods.I had a cooked,de veined,tail on shrimp packet and wished to prepare a different (from the usual curries)recipe for chapatis, and then came out with this idea of adding fried prawns to the gravy .The best part of this curry is there is no coconut or yogurt added to the gravy.My husband was impressed at the new recipe and kids loved it equally.
