Prawn dishes are very tasty and favourite item for non-vegetarians especially those who likes fishes very much. But someone will have allergic problem if they have prawns dishes. Fresh prawns will have more taste but dried prawns also tasty. I am facing difficulty to get fresh prawns so usually I am using dried prawns to make dishes. We can make a lot of variety tasty dishes by using prawns. Prawns chutney, prawns masala and prawns pickle are the common and tasty dishes of prawns. Here, I made very spicy and tasty prawns curry. I used a traditional method to make this curry so its taste is really amazing. We need not add more ingredients to make this. I used Gambooge to get sour taste. Coconut paste gives creamy effect to this curry. Prawn and garlic are very good combination and it has garlic flavour. It can use as the side dish with hot rice, mashed tapioca and mashed jackfruit. I like the smell of this curry because it is really nice. Dry prawns will last for long terms so that we can make dishes whenever we need. I like this curry as the side dish with hot plain Rice for Lunch. Let us enjoy with this special spicy dish.
