Dry Shrimp Prawns Roast

Nowadays i try to keep cooking pretty simple without compromising on the taste, my little Adya darling is growing up so fast that she really demands me to play with her, and i just love to spend the time with her.  We love full fledged meals but atimes we really take a break for a day or two. But frankly speaking , i just love this kind of simple meals , lets me to enjoy an extra hour or so.
