"This is one all-season, comfort dish. Fenugreek tempering is my personal twist that balances the heat of chillies and tanginess of raw mango. Great with bread, steam rice & fried papads. So taste it and let me know how it fares to your palate..."

  • Step 1/5

    • ¼ tbsp Turmeric powder
    • ¼ tbsp Salt to taste

    De-vein prawns and wash them clean - marinate with a pinch of turmeric powder + salt and leave aside for 10-15 mnts

  • Step 2/5

    • ¼ Coconut - grated
    • Red chillies
    • 1 cloves garlic
    • food grinder

    Grind grated coconut + red chillies + garlic cloves + 1/2tbsp turmeric powder to a fine paste ..start with little water and add more at intervals to obtain a fine consistency, like that of ketchup

  • Step 3/5

    • ¼ onion
    • tbsp fenugreek seeds
    • tbsp Cooking oil of choice
    • ¼ Raw mango
    • wok (small, with lid)

    Heat oil - add fenugreek seeds for tempering - next 4/5 seconds add chopped onion and saute for 2/3 mnts - as it turns pink add ground coconut paste and continue to saute for next 3/4 mnts - as it starts leaving oil add raw mangoes, salt & stir

  • Step 4/5

    • ½ Prawns - medium size 1 cup

    Add 1.5 cups water - bring to a boil - add prawns - lower heat & simmer by covering the wok for next 5mnts.

  • Step 5/5

    After 5/6 mnts turnoff heat and remove wok from gas. Your curry is ready - serve with steam rice and fried papads ....indicators of completion : prawns have turned whitish, have a nice bite to it - not chewy, raw mangoes are transluscent & your gravy/curry is if orangish colour & semi-thick consistency! It's very important that curry should not be boiled more as it would lead to overcooking of prawns where they become rubbery...
