Add the curry leaves and chopped garlic and fry well. Now add the chillie powder, fenugreek seeds powder, mustard powder, salt and vinegar and fry for some time. Add the prawns and mix well.

One thought on “PRAWN PICKLE”

  1. Seems very tasty. I can’t wait to try it out. However, I also like the prawn “balchao” made in Goa using the Goan vinegar and a little sugar. Both the recipes will complement each other.
