This is sure to ignite your taste buds. Adapted from the Chemmeen Roast recipe provided by Marias Menu, this helped me take my husband back to his college days spent in Chennai when he and his friends used to visit the local dhabas to eat their regular porottas and beef roast. A mix of various masalas and prawns, this dish can be used as a side dish with any varieties of Rotis or Rice
