Andhra style Prawns Fry |Andhra royyala Vepudu

Last sunday was a fish day in my house wherein hubby had got prawns and surmai (seer fish)

since i wanted to try something different I decided  to make an Andhra style prawn fry and goan surmai kalvan (fish curry ) along with multigrain bhakri and steam rice

Andhra royyalu (prawn) vepudu (fry), a lip smacking sea food dish made with onions and Indian spices, always proves to be a good hit during parties. A simple and easy dish to prepare.

After googling few recipes i tried this prawn fry which was superb .
