Prawns are my absolute favourite. I can have them sauteed with garlic and butter or in a tandoori masala. I love them in my pasta or I make delicious curry with them. Thai, Chinese and Goan. Goan Prawn curry with coconut milk is a recent addition to my prawn recipe repertoire. This prawn curry recipe is really easy to make and is super tasty. What more can you want?

Pro Tips

  1. To make kokum juice, immerse 3-4 kokum pieces in warm water for about 10-15 minutes. If you can’t find kokum use tamarind paste or vinegar in its place.
  2. Don’t overcook the prawns or they become rubbery.
  3. You can add 1/2 cup of coconut paste to the onions to make a thicker gravy.
  4. Adjust the heat and spice as per your taste. This recipe is spicy.

I love Prawn curry, though I have to admit, I mostly eat Manglorean prawn curry. But this looks delicious too. Gotta try!
