Chemmeen Ethakka Curry


Chemmeen Ethakka Curry

Today's recipe is a combination of prawns and raw plantain and is a home style recipe. It is an absolute comfort food. We Keralites tend to use a lot of plantains, but believe me this combination of prawns and plantains is awesome. If you have dried prawns then go for it. This is a very simple curry,delicious and goes well with rice

Ingredients
Ethakka -2 medium sized
Prawns - 1 cup
Shallots- 5
Tomatoes- 2
Ginger- 1 inch thick
Tamarind- one lemon size
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Grated coconut- 1 cup
Green chillies-3
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves a few

Clean prawns and set aside.Peel and chop plantains into 2 inch thin slices 
Make a fine paste of coconut, chilly powder, shallots and ginger.
Cook plantains along with tomatoes, turmeric, green chilly,little coconut oil and salt. When it is almost cooked add prawns and tamarind pulp and cook for another three to four minute. Add the coconut paste and simmer for two more minute in medium flame. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds. When they splutter add curry leaves and dry chilly and fry. Pour this over the curry and mix..serve with rice.

Try this
Hope you will all enjoy
