In every seafood loving Konkan house rawa fried prawns are a starter enjoyed before the meal. Whenever we visited our family home in Karwar we would eagerly await these made from the freshest catch. When my son-in-law joined the family, he did not eat seafood – during one of our weekend trip to Marve (beach resort) we convinced him to try out the prawn fry and after the first bite, he became a seafood convert for life. Today this dish is a family favourite at my children’s and grandchildren’s homes with every last morsel worth fighting over. It is an excellent appetizer with a chilled beer or cold beverage of choice.
