shrimp prawn curry

Malabar Prawn Curry is my kids favorite curry. It tastes great with steamed rice or with idlis or Aappam or even with chappathi or roti. It can be made as a spicy one or with mild spiciness. I made with less spicy as I need to feed my daughter. I took the recipe from here. If you want to look for some tangy and spicy prawn dish you can have a look on prawn thokku or prawn gravy. For spicy dry version prawn dishes look on to Andhra style prawn fry or chemmeen roast. Let's check on Malabar Prawn Curry and it's preparation.
