Sungat meaning prawn in konkani and sukke meaning dry.This is a dry prawn recipe which does not contain gravy.It's a very simple and fast dish which can be prepared within 15 min.I prepare this kind of prawn whenever I am running out of time and it is always delicious with the spice and tangy flavour..and prawn being our anytime favourite :-)
