Prawns Tawa Fry

I was here for bloggers meet on a weekend for lunch and we started with Prawn Butter Garlic, Prawn Tawa Fry and Squid Rings where Butter Garlic being the least spicy and felt a lot heavier when compared to the Tawa fry dishes that it came along with. Tawa Fry and Squid rings had a thick layer of spicy marination which the meat absorbed quite nicely.

The speciality dishes that came in large bowls wrapped in banana leaves were – Prawns Pollichathu and Fish Pollichathu, the slow cooked meat (in this case prawns and fish) is cooked along with the wrap and the final outcome packs a strong punch of tangy spicy masala, explaining this dish over words is one difficult task as the amalgamation of different spices is so complex that you gotta have it to understand the beauty of Pollichathu.

Prawns Ularthiyathu came in a bowl and this semi gravy-ish starter had hints of turmeric, pepper and lime. I can have this with rice all day long!! Pomfret Fry was bang on target, the folks here have got the marination right in all the starter dishes that were served till now, the perfect blend of spices and curry leaves and individual masala takes every dish to another level altogether. Next came in the Pottu with Duck Curry that was well received by everyone on our table.
