Spicy Red Prawns

I had shared a recipe on Ayam Masak Merah some time back.This recipe is also similar with the recipe but slightly different in the usage of spices and have replaced with tomato sauce instead of tomato puree .Raisins have been added to add sweetness to the dish.I have prepared it with Prawns.Just as tasty ,mouth watering and finger licking good. I served the dish with yellow glutinous rice .

Some of you might be planning to cook something special for dinner on Valentine's Day!! Why not prawns ,and why not this mouth watering recipe ???
