Wow.. I tried this dish today and it turned out awesome.. Easy to make and more importantly you have not used a lot of oil which is definitely a plus for me.. Apart from the health aspect of the dish.. I have never made a more tastier prawn dish till now.. Thanks a lot, from all of us who can't cook as well ;-)

Many thanks. Made this fabulous dish for my pescetarian daughter yesterday, and she gave me a thumpsup the moment she tasted the first morsel of it. Keep up the good work.
