Due to the many nutritional advantages of prawns, health experts love them. Prawns are a great addition to any diet since they are high in protein and low in calories. They are rich in zinc, vitamin D, and vitamin B3. They are a good source of iron as well. Prawns are also rich in unsaturated fats, which are good for your overall health. A delightful snack that can also be served as a major dish when coupled with stir-fried vegetables is golden-fried prawns. Prawns fry should be tried at least once by everybody who appreciates meat; you won't be disappointed. With just a little additional masala to make it hotter, Masala Prawn has the ideal spice combination. Coconut milk is typically used to make prawn curry, but we didn't use it in this recipe. So, if you usually eat prawn curry with coconut milk, give this dish a try once for a change and you won't be sorry. At the same time, if the flavour of coconut is non-negotiable, go ahead and use it. That core of a delicious dish is its superior taste, which will remain nonetheless.
