Prawn Puri

DSC_2744

Traditionally the prawns of this dish are served with a puri (an unlevened deep fried Indian bread), as a dish it is one of my most favorites to choose when eating out at a good Indian restaurant, but to keep the syns low in this, I have omitted the bread side of things, as the prawns are equally as delicious on their own.
