Delicious dry Prawns curry is very popular dish which can make very easily. It is very spicy dish and it has thick gravy. It is an excellent combination with Bread, Rice and Chapati for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Prawns are a sea food item but it doesn't have any bad smell like fish. We can make different tasty dishes with these dried prawns. We need not to spend more time to make this dish because it is very simple method. I have cooked prawns under low flame so every flavour will be there in gravy. To get sour taste I used Gambooge but you can use Tamarind juice if you have. It is very famous delicious Indian recipe and we need not to add more ingredients for masala in prawn's dishes. Its main flavour is Garam Masala powder flavour and grated coconut and coconut oil helps to increase the taste of this dish. This dish is very special to non-vegetarians especially those who likes prawn dishes very much.
