Prawns Curry Konju Manga



Ingredients for Prawns Curry Konju Manga:

  • 5OO gms cleaned prawns(The pink tailed variety or the smaller variety is best for kerala curry and please only use fresh prawn as this is a mild spiced curry and using frozen prawn wont be forgiving!)
  • ½ cup raw green mango (Should be nice and sour. Peel a little bit of skin and taste. If it isn’t bitter you can slice along with the skin. Otherwise peel first, then slice as shown in curry)
  • ½ cup grated coconut + 2 Shallots + 4 curry leaves
  • 1 to 2 tsp chilly powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • ¼ to ½ tsp coriander powder or upto 2 tsp depending on taste
  • salt to taste
  • ¼ to ½ cup coconut milk to adjust thickness


Method:

  • In an earthen pot, add  prawns, the mango slices, chilly powder & turmeric powder. Add enough water to submerge them,
  • Bring to boil.
  • Grind together the shallots, grated coconut and curry leaves to make a fine paste.
  • Add to curry and bring back to boil.
  • Add salt and coriander powder. (I add coriander powder a little at time till i get the right flavor). Cook uncovered on medium heat till the prawns are cooked.
  • Add coconut milk to adjust the thickness and flavor of the curry if needed.

  • Since different varieties of mangoes come at different tartness levels, add accordingly: If they are not too sour, add more. If they are very sour, add less.
  • This curry is also very tasty if made with ‘irumban pulli ‘(Averrhoa_bilimbi ; a   z    z thumb sized sour fruit sliced vertically as substitution for mango !bilimbi

 

 

 

 

Another Variation: Add 1 tsp lemon juice(freshly squeezed) if mangos are not very sour. Add towards end of cooking and stir continuously for 1 minute on low heat. Also chopped tomatoes once the prawns are cooked and simmer for 1 minute. Season with curry leaves and shallots  fried in 1 tsp oil.
