Unakka Chemmeen Ularthiyathu (Dried Prawns Stir Fry)

Can you make something special with Unakka chemmeen? For most the answer will be ‘No’. For me also it was ‘No’ until I tasted this curry made by my Mother in law. It’s so simple to make and tastes great and it will stand with any Non-veg curry you make. Try it out for a change  🙂
