Chemmeen/Shrimp/Prawns Ularthiyathu/Olathiyathu/Stir fried

A Prawn dish is ma favourite which I would love to add to ma menu. The Kerala style preparation of ularthiyathu is yummy. The prawns alone will force to have a plate full of rice. Curd, prawns and rice is a great combo.

In this recipe, I have made a little modification to ma moms recipe by adding roasted cashewnuts to it. It tastes so good. It reminded me the golden dragon special prawns fry which is ma favourite choice of ma favourite restaurant of kochi. It is a honey glazed tasty recipe.

Anyways try it out and Enjoy !!!!
