Fried Prawn Heads
Crispy juicy fry with Prawn heads.
Dish with prawn heads may be a surprising recipe to some of you.Because I came to know about this recipe after my marriage. I tasted this recipe from husband’s aunts home. I never forget that crispy juicy prawn heads fry I had on that day. Even though it will take some time to prepare this recipe,the taste is heavenly. We need to deep fry the marinated prawn heads and make masala. We can also use deep fried prawn heads itself as a side dish. I have already tried some delicious prawns recipes like Chinese Style Prawns fry ,Dried prawns curry (Konchum Manga),Prawn masala,Dried Prawns chutney powder (chemmeen podi),Pepper prawns,Prawns head fry. Please try out this recipe and don’t forget to post your comments and feedback.
