Prawn Coconut Curry | Prawns Recipes

Prawn Coconut Curry or Prawn masala with coconut is easy, delicious and spicy prawns curry. Prawn is something that is very regular at home compare to chicken at home now a days thanks to my brother whom love prawns and the fact that we get cleaned prawns in mustafa is a bless so I don't have to struggle with all the cleaning :) making my job faster. I normally make prawn masala cause that's something we really all love but this time I tried this prawn curry with coconut.

This curry I adapted from prawn masala recipe as baseline with few changes and addition of coconut, this curry is very spicy just how a good prawn curry should be according to us so if you don't eat spicy food reduce chilli powder according to your needs and enjoy the curry still.


This prawn (chemmeen/jhinga/eral) coconut masala is really delicious, you have to try to know what I'm talking about. Prawns with all the extra chili, coconut and spices makes a wonderful combination and goes very well with steamed rice or jeera rice. We as such don't have to make any side dish but I make broccoli beans stir fry along for a great weekend lunch.
