Prawn Curry |Shrimp Curry|Eral kurma

Prawn Curry is delicious and finger licking sea food recipe which is prepared with Indian spices,coconut,curry leaf to give a wonderful flavor to Prawn Curry.I always ask my granny to prepare this recipe whenever I visit her 😉 😉 as she grinds everything in Ammi Kal instead of food processor which enhances the taste of this curry.But I prepare this curry using food processor as you know in this busy days we prefer food processor …Anyways this method also tastes good :).This prawn curry becomes delicious when served along with hot steamed rice 😀 and always prefer fresh prawns rather than frozen and never use pre-cooked prawn as it destroys the taste of the curry.
