This is a spicy dish, well flavored with cocum and pepper. It is a simple and quick chemmeen roast/fry preparation. It goes well with rice. This prawns masala roast recipe is adapted from my mom-in-law 🙂

Didn't want to overcook it though.. so it's not as fried.. but tastes delicious.. as for the pic-well it's not a sumptuous looking as the one posted here :-) nevertheless tastes great.. and i i actually forgot to put the cocum, but still tastes great..
