I Welcome myself back

Its been a long time since I posted anything, the main reason for the same was, BlogSpot was blocked in our office and the aircard takes ages to open the site and then post!!! So, what I have been doing is saving the creations in my drafts and now, posting it all for you!

R and I went for a quick vacation last weekend to Goa and stayed in this beautiful property called La Calypso. We stayed in a wooden cottage and the cottage was right next to the beach, so our days and nights were filled with the sounds of the sea and lovely breeze…it was magnificent!

While in Goa, I saw R freaking out on prawns, though I always knew that he enjoyed prawns, I was quite fascinated the way he was relishing them. So I decided to dig out this recipe which I had tried my hands with sometime back and now I post it for you all.

Frozen Prawns – 200gms
Salt - to taste
Pepper -- 1 tsp
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Vindallo masala - 1 tbsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Lime juice - 1 tbsp
Coriander leaves

Thaw the prawns and sprinkle salt, pepper and red chilly and keep aside for sometime (I normally keep it for half an hour or so and do the rest right before serving).

Now, I n a pan heat some oil (2tbsp) and stir fry the prawns( this should not be more than a min or 2). Once prawns turn pink in color, sprinkle the vindallo masala and add a few drops of water, so that the prawns are covered with the masala. Now transfer the same on to a plate, squeeze some lemon juice on the top (just a bit because Vindallo masala is a little sour in itself).

And now…sprinkle some coriander leaves and serve!

It goes really well as a starter/ snacks with drinks or even with chai on a rainy day!
