Prawns Stir Fry

Ingredients

400 – 450 grams medium to large sized Prawns
1 tablespoon of Soy sauce
1 tablespoon of Vinegar
1 tablespoon of Schezwan Chutney
1 teaspoon of Sugar
2 tablespoons of oil
2 green chillies(optional)

Preparation

1
Clean the prawns and remove the black thread. I kept the tails on some of the prawns. Slit the large prawns a little. Do not go overboard. It is actually not necessary so you can conveniently ignore this step.
2
Now mix the cleaned prawns, soy sauce, vinegar, schewan chutney and sugar together. Let the prawns marinate for 20 to 30 minutes.
3
Take a pan or a wok, add the oil. You can use vegetable oil or groundnut oil, I used the latter. Heat it on a high flame.
4
After the pan is hot enough hit the marinated mixture to the pan. If you love spicy food or want to add a little bit of zing to the dish, add two slit green chillies just before adding the marinated prawns.
5
Stir fry the prawns for 2 to 3 minutes.
6
If you keep them in hot pan for more minutes, the prawns will lose their softness and become very rubbery / chewy. When cooking sea food, timing is very important.
