Prawn Curry ~ Side Dish for Poori / Chapati

Prawns Curry

Prawn Curry is a wonderful dish for Poori with the gravy made rich with cashew nuts. This serves a yummy side dish for pulao as well.

I have shared another Prawn curry with Coconut Milk and this version uses cashew nut paste, that makes it very rich and delicious. Other Prawn Dishes are something that we often make at home.

We mostly make nonveg during Sundays and when we make something new, I always click it so that it can help later. There are so many I am yet to share that I had to do something to plan for sharing these on this space. This curry is one of the favorites in the family and I am happy I am finally sharing it here.

We are doing the final week of BM#100, where I am doing the special theme and I decided to share all my nonveg dishes lying in the drafts!

  1. It’s a great idea to take pictures whenever you are making something new and save it so that it can be blogged later. I used to do it earlier, have to start again. All my posts this week has also been dug out from the drafts section.
