Dried prawns with mango stir fry is completely Kerala style stir fry. It is an excellent combination with rice, mashed tapioca and mashed jack fruit. It is very easy recipe but taste will be very nice. Usually it is preparing in summer season because mango will be available in this season. It is completely Kerala style home made dish but will be available in restaurant also some times for lunch. We can make different kinds of recipes with the combinations of dried prawns, tomato and mango but dried prawns and mango combination will give an amazing taste. It is medium spicy curry and this will have the mixed flavour of fenugreek powder and coconut oil. It will be very special to non - vegetarians. Sometimes it is serving as the side dish in wedding celebrations in some places. This recipe is my grandmother's recipe. My mother is also preparing this curry some times in my house. We will get very nice smell while cooking this stir fry and I really like this smell very much. It is traditional recipe and very special to serve guests. Everyone in my family like this curry very much so that we are making this curry sometimes. We will get a lot of compliments if we serve it to guests.
