ABOUT Jhal jhal Chingri Bharta/ Minced Prawn spicy bharta RECIPE

I had learnt this recipe from a househelp of mine. She told me that they usually had a plateful of rice with little bit of spicy prawn bharta, it tastes so good. Minced prawns are best eaten with hot plain rice and also a good source of protein.
