      This sounds like a delicious dish. I had to look up some of the ingredients like the Split Bengal Gram which comes from chick peas and the Carom ( Ajwain) Seeds of which I was unfamiliar. Supposedly it has a thyme like flavor. It all sounds really tasty when combined with prawns. Up and useful votes and will share.
