Spicy Prawn Stir-fry

     This is a very easy and tasty recipe. I tried this recipe from a cookbook gifted by my husband’s friend Abhish. It has some interesting recipes which I am planning to try over time. Even though this shrimp recipe is mentioned as an appetizer in the cookbook, it can also be served along with chappathi/rice.
