Prawn 65

Prawn 65 is an amazing appetizer or side dish with blasting flavors! One of the most favorite prawn dishes here at my home! Spicy stir-fried prawns drenched in a tangy sauce with the flavors of green chilly and curry leaves spluttered in the oil is to die for!

This one is almost the same recipe of my chicken 65 which is a favorite for many of you! This recipe is surely a keeper with bhatura or puri or even a side for fried rice or Biriyani! Chicken 65 is my go-to to make fry when there are any parties or any special occasion!

This recipe was tried when my in-laws were here who doesn’t have chicken, so made it with prawns and all loved it to the chore! Since then, my hubby used to demand it often! The flavor combination of this marinade with seafood is awesome! Try it out guys and thank me later! hehe! 65 has a variety of recipes, isn’t it? Everyone has their own version of 65 and all of them taste equally good! This recipe is my mom’s marinade for chicken65 that i tried in prawns! I’ll share the chicken 65 link  here
