I’m thinking that 20-25 min in a microwave oven would leave nothing edible. Please clarify. Thank you. I love India foods.
You can prepare it in 10-15 min with microwave high.
It’s nice to read a quality blog post. I really enjoy lots of the blog posts on your site.
I love prawns and this one I shall try soon.
Lovely Dish…loved the spices….

It’s even good to learn different versions of the same recipe :)…honestly, I love that. Let me know any comments you have on the blog or recipes.
