Prawn Coconut Curry | Coconut Shrimp Curry | Indian Prawn Recipes

Coconut prawn curry

Prawn Coconut Curry or Coconut Shrimp Curry forms a great side dish for any Indian flat breads or any Biryani varieties where you need a spicy side dish. This can be either made spicy or mild spiciness by increasing or decreasing the amount of chilli powder. In both the ways, it tastes great. Last Sunday I prepared this Prawn Coconut Curry as the side dish for the Chicken Biryani along with the Goan Prawn Fry.
