how to make Chammeen Curry | Prawns White curry


White Prawn curry made with all the easily available ingredient, simmered in onion, tomato and coconut paste is a perfect treat to savour for all seafood lovers. This is my mom's recipe, which incorporates very less spices. And so children too can enjoy well with steamed rice.


For best results, make sure you use all the fresh ingredients mainly fresh grated coconut and fresh prawns. As being a South Indian, we usually use kokum for all the fish recipes. But, if you don't have.Kokum can be replaced with tamarind. Do try and let me know how it turned out for you by commenting below or by rating the recipe.
