Tips

Prawns:

  1. Dry Prawns are dried baby Prawns. They are found in packages and also loose.

  2. The Prawn need to be friend on a high flame until the moisture evaporates. They become bitter of fried too much.

Tomato:

  1. I have used sour country Tomatoes. Only then the Chutney has a sour taste. In case you cannot find sour ones, use the regular Tomatoes and finally add some Lemon Juice.

Mirchi Powder:

  1. I have used the Mirchi Powder used for Pickles. So I used 2.1/2 tbsp. If you are using regular Mirchi Powder, increase the measure a little bit.

Oil:

  1. This Chutney needs more Oil and then it has more taste and lasts longer.
