      Thanks Banu, if you use a iron pan it will taste even more tasty and browning will happen naturally. I’m really happy that your enjoyed so many dishes, send me few clicks and i can post them on our fan page. Thanks!

    Hi Mullai,
    One of my friends told me about your SIO. Doing a great service. The wild catch (fresh sea prawns) I buy has a strong chlorine smell which does not go away even after several rinsing and cooking. I don’t like the frozen ones. Do you have any idea?

      Hi Premalatha, after shelling and deveining I marinate them with little turmeric, a pinch of salt and lemon juice for 10 minutes anything longer will literally cook the prawns because of the acidity in lemon juice. A quick turmeric lemon juice wash will also help. After marination you may either wash prawns or if you don’t mind citrus flavor then cook along with it. We don’t get fresh prawns in our area and apply this for my frozen shrimps, but have mom and in-laws do the same in India for fresh caught prawns. Hope this helps, thanks.

    Dear Mullai,

    The Era varuval is really mouth watering.Will try soon.BTW,Did u get these small prawns from any oriental stores?I hv only those jumbo prawns available in my grocery store

      Shalini, these are medium sized shrimps from Sams club. I really miss those tiny Indian prawns; never seen them in any of the stores here. Ofcourse salad style shrimps are available at Walmart, those are pre-cooked and not that tasty. Thanks.
