It been a while i made prawns at home,me and dh love seafood,when little one never likes it..The prawn thokku and rasam is the divine-nic combo we both loves to have at home..But i like other dishes too,my most favorites are prawn momos from azzuri bay and volcano prawns from Cascade...Prawns has tender flesh hardly needs 2-3 minutes to cook...I dont own a bbq griller,remind you i live in mylapore sandwiched between iyengar and iyer families on the floor..I dont want them to be chased by the smoky aroma...I just skewed all the prawns and capsicum in skewer and tossed them in tawa ,the holy juice of prawns also saved by itself...Its an addictive appetizer for the social gathering..
