Prawn Masala
Prawn Masala is otherwise known as Prawn Thokku or Prawn Curry. Prawn Masala is a very common recipe made in prawns. It tastes good and very easy to make as the ingredients are very few. As the prawns are always tender they get cooked in minutes.

Prawn Thokku is a Chettinad Recipe which is often made in all Chettinad restaurants. It is that simple that it will take only 10 minutes to make.

My hubby doesn’t eat prawn. My son asked me to try prawns recipe. In my childhood my mom made prawns masala for my brother. So I just tried this recipe. It came out very well. My hubby also ate two to three pieces. Cleaning the prawn is dedious. I don’t know how to clean. So He bought the cleaned prawns only.
