In this popular Malwani (from the western coast of India) curry, the delicate flavors of coconut are a perfect complement to the taste of the prawns.
Ingredients
  • 1 kg medium-sized prawns/shrimps (shelled and deveined)
  • 3 large onions chopped fine
  • 2 cups fresh grated coconut
  • 5 dry red chillies
  • 2 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • ½ tsp fenugreek seeds

  • Salt to taste
  • 4 tbsps vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
  • Walnut-sized ball of tamarind, soaked in hot water and pulp removed

Instructions
  1. Roast the dry red chillies on a hot pan till they begin to release their aroma.
  2. Grind all the spices, coconut, 2 of the onions, garlic and tamarind pulp into a smooth, thick paste. Do not add any water while grinding the masala.
