A delicious blend of flavors, these prawns are not spicy hot, as my toddler was able to eat them just fine. The cumin really stands out in this dish but not overpoweringly. I found the original version of this recipe on & made alterations in ingredients to suit our tastes. :)

You know it's good when your kids ask you to make it again. I used more oil and doubled the seasonings so it was a bit more saucey.
