I will make this at the weekend.
I made your recipe for lime prawns last weekend when we had a dinner party and served Indian food. The prawns were a great success as an apptetizer with samosas and pakoras.
Our banquet was a great success and I served mango sorbet and fresh mango for dessert. Something light after the 9 main dishes that our guests could enjoy, depending on their preferences!
Thanks again.
With love.
