11 January,2014

Shrimp roast Kerala style(കൊഞ്ച് /ചെമ്മീൻ ഉലർത്തിയത്) is a spicy tasty roast for rice, chapattis and parottas. I had collected the recipe from my mother and she gave me some tips and tricks also. This recipe can be used to make prawn roast also(Prawn vs shrimp comparison).

While I was calling my mother, she what is today’s special for lunch. Immediately I thought to prepare Konchu ullarthiyathu because It is one of my favorite, I know yours also will be this one. The spicy smell ignites hunger and make us crave for this dish.
Of course my husband is a great fan of this dish and he keep asking me when will you prepare the roast for me. I said “Sure, one day I will make it for you”. At last the day has come, I have prepared the dish together with rice and theeyal(തീയൽ). He loved it a lot. So friends try it out and let me know what you think about.
