Prawns roast

PRAWNS ROAST | ROYYALA VEPUDU is the fantastic must-try meal that every seafood enthusiast desires. It is a delicious, easy, and quick recipe yet filled with delectable flavors.

This dish uses very few ingredients with a modest amount of spice to enhance the flavor of the dish without overpowering the original flavor of the Prawn.

It is well-known in Andhra as the Royyala vepudu, although it is also popular in Kerala as the Chemmeen roast.

This recipe is loaded with the tanginess of tomatoes & tamarind, heat from spices, and sweetness induced by the prawns.

First, clean and marinate them in salt, turmeric, and red chili powder. Next, saute onions and garlic, then add the tomatoes and cook until they become mushy. Then, add the spices, and cook them in the seasoning. Finally, add the tamarind paste, pepper, and garam masala and garnish with coriander.

Prawns are packed with nutrition, which is a rich protein source with very few calories. They are the rich source of Selenium (which helps prevent the growth of cancer cells), Calcium, Vitamin E, Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin B12.

Deviening

The prawns are easy to prepare since they cook quickly, but the true challenge lies in cleaning and deveining them.

To obtain a cleaner one, we must remove their intestinal tract, which appears as a long black line on the rear side by running a sharp knife and drawing the black line out. I recommend deveining them before cooking them since it is essential to eliminate potential contaminants before consuming them.

Tips for making delicious Prawns Roast

  1. The prawns must be fresh, and they should always be refrigerated in deep freezers. If you keep them out at room temperature, they will develop an unpleasant odor.
  2. Clean and devein them before cooking.
  3. Cook them perfectly, over cooked ones get rubbery and lends sweetness to the dish.
