By this time, u guys must be aware of me loving Prawns... I live to eat, what to do , My grandma raised me like that.. This is one of the very simplest recipe I've known and this totally belongs to my mom.. My mom made this last year when she was here for my delivery.. I absolutely loved it and had it with curd rice, it was awesome.. Those who likes dry fish, would definitely love this podi too.. Njoy !!!
Dried shrimp -- 3/4 pound
Dry red chillies -- 3 nos. ( acc to taste )
Garlic cloves -- 2 nos.
Salt -- to taste
Dry roast the dried shrimp for 4 to 5 minutes over medium heat ,just enough to spread the heat on the dried shrimp. Heating the shrimp for long ,will make them bitter. In the same pan, roast the dry chillies and garlic for 2 minutes. Just enough to make them crisp. Transfer the roasted red chillies , garlic onto the blender / mixie and grind them first. Later add the shrimp and grind to fine powder. Store them in an air tight container .. Goes good with curd rice, even idli's n dosa's..
