Again today I am here with a side dish,a non veg curry.If you are a regular reader of this blog,I have already mentioned that our favorite sea food is Prawns.Any thing made out of it,from snacks to side dishes or rice is completely wiped off.I have already prepared snacks like this and this.And gravy types like this and a Biriyani long back.
Today's recipe is a simple yet delicious rich and creamy Prawns gravy which goes well with Basmati type rices and also with Chapati ,Naan or any type of rotis.
The prawns are marinated and fried,then added to the gravy.There are no tomatoes or chilly powder added but it has a superb taste of the Coconut milk,and that elevates its taste.Now off to the recipe:
