GOAN PRAWN CURRY
I think there is absolutely nothing more comforting than a steaming bowl of prawn curry along with some steamed rice. I love this recipe as its really easy to make and does not take much time as well.
250 grms fresh cleaned prawns
1 onion sliced
5 garlic cloves
½ an inch ginger

1 tsp coriander seeds
3 dry red chillies
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ coconut scraped
10-15 Curry leaves
1 tbsp tamarind pulp

Marinate the prawns in salt and lemon juice for 30 mins.
In a pan,add 2 tbsp coconut oil.
Add the onions,garlic,ginger,cumin seeds,coriander seeds,dry red chillies and the turmeric powder.Saute till the onions become golden brown.

Then,add the tamarind pulp,some water for the curry and salt.
