A video is also posted for prawns curry below and please leave your feedback below for any queries on this recipe.
In andhra, telangana, kerala and goan regions prawns curry is commonly made and served with rice.
Fish and prawn curries are usually common in coastal regions. I have made prawns recipe by using coconut and hopefully I post more and more prawn recipes without coconut and other prawn related recipes.
One prawn recipe that is a commonly read and viewed on my blog is prawns fry and I have got another interesting south indian style prawn curry for my viewers that can be served with steamed rice.
Making prawns is very easy but to clean and devein the prawns is a very tedious process.
Cleaning prawns by deveining is a very important step as eating prawns without deveining causes severe health issues.
Make sure to devein them prior to making any prawn recipe.
Prawns are quick in cooking and they take not more than 15 minutes to get cooked and they taste delicious in any form of cooking such as prawns fry or prawns curry.
In this recipe I have added onions, tomatoes, coconut to make it a gravy form of curry. This form or prawn masala curry tastes yum with rice.
Firstly, we need to clean the prawns well, saute them in salt and turmeric powder for few minutes and then we need to add these prawns into the onion, tomato and coconut gravy.
It is a very easy recipe and can be made without any difficulty.
Seafood is always delicious in any form and every non vegetarian wishes to have seafood like fish, prawns/shrimp in any form but seafood should be well cleaned before using it.
Let us learn the recipe in written format and also with step by step procedure with the help of a video.
