Prawns in Coconut curry : Fiesta Friday 33

 

20140814_160826

 

I found these interesting Prawn sayings on the web which I wanted to share with all of you. I didn’t know there were two terms dedicated for this : PrawnusSayus and Preek (Prawn Speak) .

I found these particularly Punny, I mean Funny:

The-big-prawn-1989

This building got prawned

You got Prawned! – Slang- “You got owned!”

 

 

            Yo Prawn! –  Slang for “yo bro!”

          “Prawn a Leg’ -” Slang- “Break a leg”

Famous Prawn quotes:

“A small step for prawns, a giant leap for prawn-kind.”Prawnce Armprawn

“I have a prawn, that one day men and prawns can live together is peace.” – Prawnthin Prawnther Prawn-King

“To prawn or not to prawn, that is the question.” – Wilprawn Shakyprawn
“Life is like a box of prawns, you never know what your going to get.” -Prawn Hanks

“Prawn, James Prawn.” – Prawn Connery

While preeking (speaking about prawns) I have this uniquely funny fact related to me. I am allergic to touching prawns,so much so I can’t point a finger at them without my finger getting itchy and swollen, though the good part is I can eat them without any problem. Strange Right ?

Prawn in fresh coconut is my mom’s recipe. This is how she likes to cook prawns. For all those who are tired of frying, breading, grilling or barbecuing prawns, try this delicious curry. You can eat this with breads or rice.

Things you need:

  • 1/2 kg. shelled prawns/shrimps ( deveined)
  • 3 onions grated
  • 2 each cloves, cardamom
  • 2 inch cinnamon stick
  • 1 tbsp. ginger garlic paste
  • 2 green chilllies chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Red chilli powder to taste ( 1/2 to 1 tsp.)
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp. chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 tbsp.Fresh coconut paste
  • 2 tbsp. oil

In a wok, heat the oil and saute the onions till translucent. Add the cloves, cardamom and cinnamon. Then add the ginger garlic paste and green chillies.  Add the prawns and saute for a minute. Add the coconut paste, salt, chilli powder and turmeric powder.

Now add a glass of water, cover the wok with a lid and cook. Add some more water if needed.Make sure the prawns don’t get overcooked. ( Tip: Prawns should curl loosely. Tightly curled prawns are overcooked and tough)

Leave it to simmer for a couple of minutes on low heat. The water should have been dried up by now and the oil separated. Sprinkle chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with breads or rice. Enjoy…

This is my contribution to Angie’s Fiesta Friday. Come along and join the fun. It is the most happening party in the blogosphere. This weeks FF is being co hosted by  Andrea @Cooking with a Wallflower and Sylvia @Superfoodista,
