Given it is a Pickle, the recipe calls for extra salt, sourness, and spices. However, you may adjust as per taste.
I use small size prawns to make the Achar. Instead of small sized ones, medium size can also be used.
You can substitute Prawns with Shrimp.
I prefer to use Mustard Oil to make the Prawn Pickle. You can use vegetable oil as well.
Sugar is completely optional and not used authentically. However, I prefer to add little sugar to balance the flavors.
The amount of oil can also be increased or decreased. I use 1 Tbsp. of Oil for each 100g of Prawns.
