Chingrir Batichachchori or Prawn cooked in ‘dam’ with slices of potato and onion, perhaps happens to be the simplest recipe of prawn I ever knew of. I grew up in a joint family of 11 members and thus came across different recipes from my mother, grandmother and aunts as well. This one is one of my favourite dishes cooked by my aunt. She is an excellent cook and leaves mark on her every single recipe. Do try this super easy and delicious prawn dish which can be prepared at the blink of your eye.
