    It is a very common and popular recipe. Tomato is not available in ingredients where as it is being used during preparation. Need to be amended accordingly. During cleaning the prawns, a stick to be pierced into the prawn so that to keep the prawns straight and the sticks need to be taken out just before serving. It would give a good presentation.
