Chilli Prawns

Chilli Prawns Pic credit: Priya Q

I tried this recipe out from one of the books that I have. In India, most of us face this problem where we can’t find the foreign ingredients and are not aware what the substitutes could be. Dry sherry is one of the ingredients in this recipe. Used rice wine which Q picked during his Hong Kong trip. The result wasn’t too impressive. Rice wine gave a peculiar taste that both of us didn’t like Though the book says that it a substitute for sherry. Anyways, I tried with red wine and the results were better. Check out the Chili Prawn recipe…
