Kolambi Tawa Fry - Prawns fry

Late 1990's I developed my love for seafood and I am ever thankful to the awesome malvani seafood restaurants in Bombay. These were the places I visited the most and the love for seafood grew. I hope to visit those places in sometime soon!


Kolambi name itself was quite attractive. I recall having kolambi fry at a small (then) roadside popular eatery at linking road, Bandra just because of the alien term "Kolambi" They are so delicious and I never knew creepy things can be so yum. :) I started trying so many varieties of prawns and couple of years down the line, I knew I was preparing it at home. Tawa Kolambi was one such dish that made me drool, each time I knew i was going to have it or make it.


The whole taste elevates not only because of the few flavorful ingredients but because its made on an iron griddle or tawa. I have tried making the kolambi in a non-stick and also other pans but nothing beats the taste of iron tawa


so without much delay let me take you through my way of making Kolambi Tawa Fry
