I'm pretty excited about this coming weekend. A bunch of us are heading down to the beautiful Jurassic Coast of Dorset to do some trekking and for some hard core fun. I am thoroughly looking forward to it and hoping like mad that the weather hold good.
In Chennai, I lived about 10 feet away from the beach and couldn't care less about going there frequently.. Now after being in UK for close to 3 years, I'm so beach deprived and I so badly want some sea and sand. So is the way of life I guess.
This is a recipe I've had in my drafts for ages and thought i should post it before i completely forgot it existed. As usual its an easy peacy no strain recipe i use when I'm really lazy. Enjoy!
King prawns- 250 gms, deveined and cleaned
Onion- 1 large, roughly chopped
Tomato- 2 medium, chopped

In goes the onions and tomato and saute till they are cooked and the oil starts separating
