Sweet & Sour Prawns

We usually have seafoods twice a week, most of our dishes goes for fish fry coz everyone at home just love it. After fish, we love prawns, i never forget to buy them whenever i go to Indian groceries,coz the prawns we get in chinese stores doesnt taste great as we get from Indian groceries. Earlier when i came to Paris, i was awestuck to see the varieties of frozen prawns we get here, but somehow nothing will be like the fresh prawns we get in Pondicherry. Wat to do, we have to manage everything and my tastebuds started accepting those frozen prawns.

Coming to this sweet and sour prawns, i prepared this delicious prawns for our last sunday's lunch. I simply served it with a bowl of ghee rice, both together tastes fabulous. You can serve this prawns very well with a bowl of hot steaming rice.Everytime we go to Chinese restaurant, we never failed to order this sweet and sour prawns, its been a while i wanted to try them at home. Finally i prepared them at home in my own way to suit my tastebuds.Sending this irresistible prawns to Usha's Seafood Feast.
