Dynamite Prawns

Last Summer, we visited Dubai on our family vacation. While everyone else had made a list of places we must experience, I had a list of places to eat and buy food products. Proud to be a foodie u see.

One such must have on my list was PF Changs Dynamite Shrimp. Now my husband is allergic and my son here worships his father so he too had given up eating prawns. When we ordered the dish, me and my daughter were pleased as punch that we just had to split by 2. The prawns were piled high in a glass and we couldn’t wait to devour it. It met expectations completely. Absolutley lip smacking

A year later, and I was just laying thinking what should I do of the prawns I had kept aside after rawa masala frying half of them. Don’t know how the dynamite prawns came to mind. Googled a few recipes and then decided to take the generic idea of the recipe and make my own version. So here it is, creamy with a good chilli hit and oh so delicious.
