Nadan Chemmeen Varuthathu Kerala Style Prawn Fry
I always make prawn in gravy style or semi gravy like prawn masala, prawn curry etc as it's easy for me to just make on prawn curry along with steamed rice for a quick lunch but making something dry type side dish with prawn is rare and I normally pair it up along with some beans or veggie like I did here in Prawn and Lobia Curry.  But my brother whom like seafood much insist to have dry type side dish for change.

I wanted to make prawn fry Kerala style for quite some time and once I tried it has become regular at home now, it's quite spicy and aromatic if you don't eat spicy food then reduce chilli quantity.

Few people deep fry prawns in this recipe but actually it's not needed I think add little extra oil than we normally use and this varuthathu taste delicious. It's perfectly gets pair along steamed rice you can try it even with jeera rice or add a rasam or simple dal along.  Enjoy these mouth watering Chemmeen Varuthathu it hardly takes any time (oh ignore the marination time, do something else while the prawn gets marinated).
