Prawn Chutney ( Unakka Chemmeen Chammanthi )

               Dried Prawns chutney is a super combination that can be served with rice or kanji(rice gruel).The mouthwatering smell is enough for me to eat rice if there is prawns chutney..we, the modern housewives make it using a mixer jar but when it is prepared over grinding stone...!!!oooh salivation comes from my mouth...!!Our grand mothers used to grind coconut over grinding stone instead of our mixer jar..the blend of coconut along with red chilly and dried prawns will be a immemmorable taste for every one...absolutely every one is missing those tastes...

              Actually i got this recipe from my grand mother in law ..when she prepare any thing "special" she used to call us to taste it..Her idichakka thoran,chakka puzukku,chemmeen chutney ,mambayar payasam,cherupayar payasam etc are those which the modern era may not know to cook..I had tasted it and i am sharing those traditional recipes to the may try it and feel the traditional taste by looking at the recipe given below...Enjoy!!
