Juicy and lip-smacking Tawa prawns! A very easy recipe with a flavor blast! Prawn is one versatile seafood that everyone could enjoy! whatever way we make it turns out so yum! This one is no exception!

No onion or tomato means no cutting or chopping but still you will get a minimal amount of flavorful gravy that you can’t stop licking your fingers! hehe I really mean it!
