Fried Shrimps

Last night was a shrimp fiesta! Made some prawn biryani and prawn fry alongwith some raita and sat in front of the TV and had a lovely dinner! Well I mention TV specifically coz after almost a gap of 2 yrs, we got the cable! Yeah we had decided to get of the hook as we were slowly turning into couch potatoes! So we got it out and started taking some classes such as language and swimming and stuff.

Anywayz back to food :)

I am not a great fish eater. But when it comes to prawns/shrimps, I can have a lot of it :) Love the way my mom makes shrimp biryani, shrimp curry, fried shrimps, shrimp masala.. etc etc!! Will post these recipes hopefully soon :)
