I dont’t know anyone who doesn’t love a good Kerala Style Prawn Roast. Succulent and tangy prawns roasted perfectly in a blend of spices that accentuates the seafood delightfully. This recipe really is particularly boosted by the ginger which is added towards the end. I believe it’s what makes this dish so good.
