Recipe : Kardi(baby prawn/shrimp} curry

Ingredients:

  • 2tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 cup baby prawns/kardi
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4″ ginger
  • 1 green chili
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp corriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp poppy seeds
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 3 peppercorns
  • 2 cloves
  • 1/2″ cinnamon stick
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 small raw mango, cubed/chunks
  • 1/2 cup thick extract of coconut milk
  • 1-2tsp any flour to thicken
  • salt to taste

Instructions:

  • Grind all the ingredients mentioned in green text and keep aside.
  • Heat a vessel/kadhai and add some oil.
  • Once hot, add the sliced onion and sautรฉ until translucent.
  • Add the raw mango pieces followed by the masala paste.
  • Fry the masala and add water in between to prevent burning or drying out.
  • Once the raw smell of the spices disappears, add the prawns.
  • Prawns cook really quickly. They will become more opaque and brighter once cooked.
  • Add salt and flour as per liking.

This dish was prepared by my mother who likes doing things the traditional way. I prefer to fry the onions and grind them with the spices for a smoother and thicker gravy. You can choose to do it either way.

My mom has used tiny baby shrimp. You can replace it with any other type of prawn/shrimp/seafood.

I hope you enjoy cooking and eating/serving this dish.
