Prawn Gravy / Yeral Thokku

Already I have shared few prawn recipes, you could check them at: https://madraasi.com/main-course/non-vegetarian/seafood/. This is totally different from the others, may be the ingredients would lightly differ but the taste, colour and texture of the gravy is totally different.

It has mild sweet, tangy and spicy taste. This goes out well with any variety rice especially with curd rice. Let us move on to the recipe…
