Virudhunagar Prawns Vadai

Virudhunagar is famous for parottas as all knows. Here is an another delicious recipe from virudhunagar. When I was in my college a close friend of mine whose native is virudhunagar invited me once to her home, there her mother cooked this vadai. It’s really a crispier, yummy yummy appetizer. No one can stop eating it just one.
Cleaning the prawns: it may be a difficult task. But it’s a must. Unless cleaned properly may lead to stomach problems. Cleaning includes deveining that is removing its stomach part, black thread like thing on its top.
