Spicy Prawn Roast Recipe

Prawn Roast of Chemmen Roast Recipe is the simple kerala style recipe. It is easier enough and simple receipe for preparing Prawn. There is step by step pictures too included to describe the procedures, correctly and to be in order. The prawn recipe is simple enough that even a person starting the cooking experiements can make the same without any hassle.

The total preparation time is around 20 minutes only and you need to clean the prawns before that or you may need to add additional time for the cleaning of prawns. In kerala, if some money if offered to the fisher women, they will easily clean the fish that we buy, and that's is how people like me escape from cleaning the fish. Any way, I had my mom to assist me for this preparation.
