    Nirupa's Note:

    This is the most easiest way to cook spicy prawns and it can be done rather quickly as well. This dish was first prepared for me by my guy and love Biju and i post this recipe in rememberance of him. I like to let the prawns cook on really low heat, this enables the juices to come out the prawns and so i have to add less water for cooking. But if you dont have the patience just add about 1 cup of wate.

      Hi Nirupa! I had to let you know that the receipe was sensational. My husband and myself loved it very much, its so simple and yet so much full of flavour. Just to let you know, I omitted the mustard seeds but it was great anyways. Well done!
