Grilled Prawns using Sukiyaki Sauce with Mayo - Strawberry dip

Sharing my son's favourite dish which is named as "prawn Stick" by him :) The process of the dish is quite simple yet tasty.

Though these yummy prawns can be served with any dip, this strawberry dip gives a flavor fight in each bite. The mild tanginess from the dip and spicy taste from prawns compliments each other to give a delicious starter. In this recipe, I have used dried strawberries which can also be substituted with fresh ones.

Ingredients :

40 Medium sized prawns
3 Tbsp Sukiyaki Sauce
1/2 Tbsp Fish Sauce
1/4 Tsp Pepper powder
1 Tsp Wasabi Paste
1 Tsp Lemongrass powder

2 Tbsp Sukiyaki sauce
10 Dried Strawberries, Finely chopped
Few finely chopped Mint leaves
A pinch of pepper powder

Vazhaipoo Vadai Kuzhambu / Banana Flower Vadai Kuzhambu

Sharing one of my most favourite kuzhambu prepared using Vazhai poo which I have been relishing from childhood. Still remember those days of fighting with my brother to grab the first set of piping hot vadas. Few foods make us nostalgic and this is one for me :)
