Kaduku Eral (Mustard Prawns)


I tried out this recipe and another called Chilly Chicken from a book that was a gift to my by my hubby when we got married - "The best of Indian Cooking - a selection of recipes from the Taj Group of Hotels". I had loaned this and another titled "Vegetarian Cooking by Lalita Ahmed" to a friend. So these books missed the packing and since there are light weight, I decided to bring them to Doha to try more of the recipes from these books.
