There is a small story behind this recipe.I have a follower in my city who is spanish by the name of Paco Herrero who loves indian food and cooking. He contacted me through youtube after watching my cooking videos (much to my shock) and then started getting his spice supply from me. He followed my chicken tikka recipe to the “T” and even followed my tip about the left over marinade. Instead of freezing it he decided to make KING PRAWN TIKKA out of it. For the chicken tikka recipe and video please click here.
Now what he did was use the chicken tikka marinade for the prawns BUT… i guided him to add a bit of turmeric, cumin and garam masala to the usual chicken tikka marinade to give it a different taste. He then grilled them and sprinkled lemon juice on them and took out a pic..
PACO….muchas muchas gracias!!!!
