Prawn pickle

prawn pickle.,

After I started to blog,I get lot of requests from my friends and relatives to help them in preparing Podi & Pickles.This recipe was made under a humble request from a friend who wants to stock it for the Ramzan fasting. I have tasted these Non-veg pickles may times but haven’t tried them even once.
I then decided to get this recipe from my Mallu friend,who then mailed me the very next day with many versions of Non veg pickles made from chicken,fish and prawns.Being a beginner I selected a simple easy version and succeeded making them.
Making this Prawn pickle is super easy except the cleaning of prawns which is time consuming.Every Seafood lovers must try this pickle at home,they go well with idly,dosa,rice and breads too.




1 cup prawns

10-12 dried red chillies

8 cloves garlic

2 inch of ginger
