Kerala Style Prawn Curry

Written by Linu Freddy

It was a weekday and like usual I was thinking about what to prepare for dinner at the last minute. Since I had some prawns in the freezer, I decided to search for a quick and easy prawn curry. And voila, google throws up this Kerala Style Prawn Curry recipe from the Good Food website. The accompanying picture looked too delish to ignore and I ended up trying this one. A simple dish, it paired well with boiled basmati rice and was over in a jiffy!

1 onion (sliced finely)
A small piece of ginger (chopped)
2 green chillies (split)
