Prawns dishes are my favourite items especially with raw mango. Dried prawns and raw mango are super combination to make curry. Dried prawns mango curry can make spicy, medium spicy and spicy less based on our preferences. It is very simple and easy method to make at home. It is completely natural and traditional dish and traditional dish and it will have variety taste comparing other non-vegetarian dishes. Fresh prawn is very tasty but also dried prawns also have good and verity taste. Here, I used only natural and traditional ingredients which are available in my home. We need not to use more ingredients to make this dish. It is medium spicy dish and also has the sour and salt taste. It has the mixed flavour and smell of Ginger, Garlic and Fenugreek Seeds. Coconut paste is giving good taste and thickness to this dish. You can serve it as the side dish with Chapati and Hot plain Rice. I would like to have this with hot Plain Rice for lunch. It is completely healthy dish because we have used very less quantity of Coconut Oil to make this. Let us enjoy with this tasty traditional Prawn dish.
