Chemmen Achar/Kerala Prawns Pickle.

Print Friendly and PDF

I make cheemen (prawns) pickle often because my son just loves it.
He loves to take it school and "share" with his friends and I end up making 2 batches a week.

I use the recipe of my basic fish pickle which I had posted here sometime back. 

To see the step by step instruction please go to here.

Marinated prawns.

I add little curry leaves to towards the end of frying...for that extra flavor.

Store in glass jars.

Have a great weekend!!
