Prawns 65

Whenever my hubby feels like eating fish, he just goes to the local super store and gets it. If he does not get the fresh fish, he goes to another store and finally gets the best fish in town.
This weekend he got one of the best prawns. Normally, I prepare the Goan prawns curry or do prawns rawa fry. While browsing through my friends blogs, I surprisingly found prawns 65 recipe in Jay’s blog named Tasty Appetite. I made up my mind that I will try this recipe with slight modifications.
The verdict was, the dish turned out great. My hubby showered 1000 praises. He was very happy and just looking at him and how he had the dish, my heart was filled with joy. My hubby loves home-made food. When I got married he once told me ” Dear, I am bored of eating the hotel food. Since last 10 years I have been eating hotel food. Prepare anything that you want, I will eat.” Since then the journey started and today it landed up here, in my blog.
I used to fearlessly cook since then. Sometimes my dish turned salty and sometimes very spicy… sometimes it even burned. But that was the fun. Whenever we to go to some restaurants, I order dishes which I never had and then try to understand what all went in it. Sometimes the contents of the dish are mentioned on the menu card itself, but only taste makes me understand the spices that went in the dish.
