Prawn Jalfrezi Recipe
Jalfrezi is a dish origianting in the Indian sub continent, which means the meat or veggies are cooked with fresh chillie, tomatoes and onions. Prawn Jalfrezi is a very easy to make Indian seafood recipe. Cooking prawns always need some care because if we overcook it becomes rubbery. Prawns has always been my favourite and since it has become my daughters favourite too, I cook it very often these days. I experiment many recipes with prawns and whatever I try it always turns to be a hit. You can also try the recipe with Chicken, Paneer or mixed vegetables.
