'Prawn Koliwada' - A Mumbai Street seafood

"Prawn Koliwada", is a lovely prawn starter very famous in Mumbai.
During my childhood I used to love these made by my grand aunt but over the years I almost forgot about them.
Recently I went to this sea food restaurant in Bangalore which is a very famous Mumbai sea food restaurant chain. And there we ordered the day's special "Prawn Koliwada"
While eating these yummy prawns I was reminded of my childhood mumbai holidays....the way me and my dad used to gorge on these lovely a memory i will cherish for a lifetime...
Back home after this dinner, I was going thru my granny's hand written cookbook once again, finally found this lovely recipe...
I know its been a while since I posted any dish, but the last month has really been work, house work, exams, festivals, parties....

Am sure you will forget my long absence once you cook and eat this here goes....
