One of my friend was gonna come for lunch, she loves seafood so I thought of making prawns curry. I wanted to make something new so I just did an experiment with this dish, but believe me it came out so flavorful and amazing. It’s very creamy in texture and rich in taste. Flavor of each spices is just burst into mouth. Ingredients may look a lot but believe me this recipe is very easy.
