Pan Fried Shrimps

Pan Fried Shrimps ( Tawa Masala Prawns ) is easy lip smacking and soft with authentic flavor .

In this Pan friend shrimp recipe of mine shrimps are just marinated with few ingredients and then pan fried on high flame until the prawns are cooked.

As coming from machiwala background , we have a habit of cleaning them quickly , as I still remember before my marriage , dad or uncle’s used to send 1-2 kg prawns every alternate day for cooking them in lunch . So had to shell out quickly as we had a joint family and it was fun to do so . At times peeled ones were also been send home , as per their convenience . Coming back to Shrimps  Tawa Masala / Pan Fried Shrimps, when you have unpeeled shrimps then please mind it while peeling it or you might hurt your fingers.
