Prawn Pickle

Its quite a known pickle in my hometown and each and every family have their own version of making out this prawn pickle, some will go for ginger garlic paste while other will go for just garlic cloves and special spice powder prepared with cumin seeds,mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds..Learned from my mom, this pickle is one of my all time favourite, a real feast for seafood lovers..This pickle stay for more than two to three months, if they are conserved properly..My way of making out this pickle is definitely quite an easy way to prepare this spicy, mouthwatering pickle... This pickle goes awesome with any dish, we love to have for our breakfast along with idlies or dosas and for lunch along with rasam or sambar..This pickle can also suits prefectly as a spread over breads and its a real feast for spicy lovers...While we were kid, my mom used to prepare this spicy pickle with freshy bought prawns, which is quite a dream for me since i dont get that much easily fresh prawns here, anyhow we get fortunately variety of frozen prawns..My mom is an expert in making this pickles which i learned after getting married, she usually prepare almost 4or 5bottles full of this pickle whenever she do and those bottles will definitely get finished before a month..We love that much..
