Prawns Curry – Chemmeen Curry

Prawns Curry – Kerala Style is prepared in thick Coconut milk with green chilies & ginger flavor mixed in it. Easy to make but rich in texture are the qualities of this curry. This is one of our favorite dishes. This curry goes very well with hot rice. You can substitute coconut powder with grated coconut as per your convenience. I used fresh grated coconut to get the coconut milk. Let’s get into the recipe. Please post your comments after you make this recipe in your kitchen.
