Goa is known for few of the finest beaches in India, at the same time this small state has also given a lot to the Indian cuisine. Goa being the coastal state get’s a good share of daily sea catch including fish, crabs and prawns. It also grows a lot of coconut and hence it forms the part of its cuisine. The Goan style of cooking also uses a lot of spices which goes well with the climate. Using all these three I made Goan Style Prawn Curry and it came out finger licking good. It went perfectly well with home made chapati’s and can also be enjoyed with any other Indian bread. This curry can really carry a whole meal with itself, so why not try it out with this Goan Style Prawn Curry Recipe.
