Prawn Pepper with Gravy

Prawns are delicious in whatever way we cook it !!I really can’t resist the smell while frying the prawns.For sure one or two will go in my mouth. Hehe!The whole house will be fragrant.This is a dish made with well marinated and fried prawns with some Indian spices and then make a thick gravy with coconut milk.It’s spicy with good flavor of pepper and coconut milk.

I love to experiment with prawns because it cook so quick and also almost all flavors goes very well with prawns.I already have one Garlic & Pepper Prawn Roast  on the blog.This one will compliment well with vellayapam or any other malabar rotis and of-course with chappati and puris.

If you are bored with those regular gravies do try it!
