Chettinad Eral Sukka/ Prawn Sukka/ Shrimp Dry Recipe

                It has been long time since I am blogging. Yet my long pause has been resumed by a damn delicious recipe, (after trying you ll too accept with me) Prawn Sukka.  Rather than saying me as Non- vegetarian, I would exclaim myself as a lover of Sea Foods. Prawn is a perfect one of the sea food group.

            Most kids resisting food even go crazy with prawn/shrimp. Any of the recipe using prawn/shrimp either briyani, shrimp fried rice,etc is always amazing. 

Prep Time 10-15 mins (includes marinating time)
