one of the young and popular cousins in the non-vegetarian food family is prawn. When pickled, she is fiery hot and finger-licking spicy – just the kind of medicine needed to bring your everyday meal back to life.

The art of pickling prawn is perhaps most skillfully displayed in the coastal areas of Goa and Andhra. Goans have, in fact, reportedly mastered this art.
