Prawn is an all time favorite with Keralites. Actually more time is needed in its cleaning process. It is quite easy to make this tasty Prawn Stir Fry when Prawn is cleaned. The vein like string appearing in a prawn is actually its internal organs and intestine. If not cleaned thoroughly it may leave a bad taste and it causes indigestion.

Here, I am sharing a typical Kerala dish prepared with prawns that can be made with less ingredients and less time. This goes well with rice as side dish.
