Hot and Sweet Chilly Prawns

If there is one thing that my husband cannot live without,it’s probably prawns. Hehe, yeah prawns!! He loves it that much. But prawns are not very friendly with me though, it gives me allergy. Even then i make prawn dishes very often for him. 

Hot and Sweet Chilly Prawns

I mostly prepare prawns in the South Indian method, particularly kerala way because thats how Fadal likes it. But i was super bored with the same way of cooking. So i thought of making an Indo-Chinese version of it. 
So i came up with this hot and sweet chilly prawns. It was very quick and easy to make and it turned out great. The sweet, hot and sour taste was so tasty that it went very well with the succulent prawns. 

And this dish was a winner with Fadal too, but i knew it would be. Anything, be it chicken,beef or prawns   with hot and sweet sauce is hard to mess up…so much goodness in that combo. 

Try it and enjoy! 🙂
