Prawn Malai Curry Recipe

As much as I am vegetarian my partner is fond of non-vegetarian food. This means he ends up cooking his own non-veg food, and try to help him with my ideas on cooking. This “Prawn malai curry” is another such recipe which was executed by Kapil and I dd my bit with providing him guidance 😉

I reckon if you are prawn lover, you will like this curry. It has distinct south indian taste, thanks to Coconut milk. If you familiar with Goan cuisine, you may find a little it of overlap, due to popularity of coconut usage in coastal regions of India.

This prawn curry recipe is absolutely simple, and is only 4 steps (see below). In this recipe I have used marination, however you may decide to skip marination. My personal view is that marination enhances the taste multi-fold hence marinate the prawns where possible when you follow this recipe.
