Malabar Prawn Curry Recipe
Start with marinating the prawns (shrimp). Before marinating, make sure you peel and devein them. The marinade is super simple – a basic addition of lemon juice, ground turmeric and salt. I also like to fry the prawns before adding to the curry. This will impart a crispy texture as well as gorgeous color to the prawns (shrimp).
Now, you can make the base sauce for this Malabar prawn curry. Sauté some onions until light brown and then add ginger, garlic and green chilies. Adding fresh curry leaves to the curry brings in the authentic taste. Now, the spices get a quick stir fry followed by tomatoes. The tomatoes need to turn mushy. Then, tamarind paste, coconut milk, fried prawns and coriander leaves are sautéed in this spice mixture. Once the prawns are cooked through, garnish with more curry leaves.
Deliciously authentic Malabar prawn curry for a flavorful addition to your meals.
