Prawn Manchurian Dry

For the Cooking with Cookbook Challenge this week, I have a manchurian take with Prawns. This is a dish direct from Amma's kitchen for all prawn lovers. This has thumbs up from everybody at home and when the aroma was sneaking out, I knew everybody would love it.

Boys are not that fond of Prawns and though the Prawns Roast is Chinnu's favorite, and the Prawns Dum Biryani never fails to get their attention, they are still reluctant to enjoy as they like chicken. Peddu stays away from Prawns. So it's not a frequently bought season.

We decided to try another new dish even with the rarity this makes an appearance. Amma's dairy was taken out. She said she noted it down from a TV show and ever since I said I have this challenge going on, she has been keen on trying out all the recipes she has written down.

I just noticed that even with all its rare appearance, I do have some handful of Prawn recipes.
