Coconut Milk - 1/4 cup (optional - original recipe does not have)
Grated Coconut - 2 tsp (optional)
Oil - 2 tsp

4. When the mustard seeds splutter, add in the onion, ginger garlic paste, curry leaves and green chillies.
5. Saute them well.
6. Add in the coconut pieces and fry them for 2 to 3 min.
7. Add in the marinated prawns and cook them by sprinkling little water.
8. Mix them well. Check for the salt and also add the grated coconut.

11. Garnish with coriander leaves and onion and serve


Prawn Recipes

Notes:
  1. The original recipes calls for fenugreek powder and as I dont have it ready made, I used normal fenugreek seeds. Next time would be trying with fenugreek powder.
  2. Also, I added coconut milk little, as I feld the prawns are very spicy and my kids cannot eat it. You can avoid that, if you can bear the spiciness.
  3. I also added grated coconut to make it more tastier.
