Prawns fry is amazingly tasty and crispy shrimp marinated with indian spices and deep fried in oil. It serves as a great appetizer and can be made in no time.
Prawns also known as kolambi is Marathi is one of my favorite sea food. I remember mom making this prawns fry every time she made the prawns curry.
