METHI-MASALA PRAWNS


Seafood with methi or fenugreek brings out an

unique and enhanced taste.

Masalas like this, are finger-licking and can be

served with any meal .

When cooking masalas like this you have take

care not to cook the prawns for a long time .

Cooking jumbo prawns will take only 7-8

minutes,so it’s best to make the masala thick or

your required consistency ,and then add the

prawns.

This way the masalas will,blend well and the

prawns will not turn chewy or rubbery.
