Prawn fry recipe or royyala vepudu is shallow fried with the basic spices and its an instant dish that can be made in few minutes. But, the most important point in making a prawn recipe is cleaning and deveining the prawns.
Freshness of the prawns:
- Prawns too is a sea food like fish and it cannot sustain for long time if kept in room temperatures. They perish soon and they start smelling with bad odour if stored in room temperature.
- Consume them fresh by cooking them or store the cleaned prawns at extreme cold temperature such as deep freezers in fridge which help keep the uncooked prawns remain fresh for at least 3-4 days without break in power supply.
- Even if the prawns are cooked, consume them as they can last only for few hours to room temperature and the cooked prawns begin to smell as the time passes and the reason is they cannot withstand the room temperature.
Once that is done, the prawn recipes don’t require lots of time and are quite simple dishes. There are lots of videos available on the procedure to clean prawns.

Fish and prawns are the common sea food dishes that are preferred across the country. Prawns can also be called as shrimp or shrimps and are so delicate in handling and to touch.
Cleaning the intestinal area:
- All the prawns have a long line which is black in color which is basically the intestinal tract and just giving an incision and pulling the black line out gives us a clean prawn.
- Sometimes, prawns are bought with the shells and there are many sources available online that direct the procedure on removing the shells and cleaning prawns.
- Many tend to cook prawns without cleaning and removing the intestinal tract as it is not extremely harmful but I would suggest to remove them as it contains all the impurities which may effect in the long run with regular consumption.
