Written By Angela Steffi on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 | 11:33:00 PM

Prawns Pepper Fry is very simple, delicious and it is quite easy to make. Prawns are always my favorite sea food and it has a unique taste and and absorbs all the seasoning added to it. This pepper prawns are made with less spices and i have not added any chilly powder instead i have added only pepper powder to enjoy the fullness of taste. Freshly ground pepper powder always adds nice aroma and flavor to the recipe compared to store bought pepper powder. Then the whole spices added to the prwans also makes the dish rich and keeps it simple. 
We can make the pepper prawns dry or as gravy. I have made prawns pepper fry dry but yo can make it prawns pepper gravy by adding one tomato and some water.Always use deveined prawns to make any prawns recipe.This recipe is an awesome side dish for rice, chapathi , Roti. Any my favorite combination is with dosa.
