This Sungta upkari is one of my aayi’s signature dishes. Everyone at home and the guests who have tasted this, love this. This has a sweetish taste to it because of the onions and prawns. This dish comes under easy-to-prepare dishes list. If you want to cook something very delicious and don’t have much time, go for this one. This needs hardly 10-15mins and you will have the dish ready.
Although any kind of shrimps work well in this, the tiny ones taste the best. Here when I don’t find the tiny shrimp, I cut the large ones in small pieces and make this. It goes well with rice or chapatis.
