Bhalobasar Chingri (Lovingly Prawns)

September 7, 2019 | By

Cooking prawns with love makes them taste heavenly. Debasish tries out his favourite Golda Chingri (Large Prawns) when in a mood to do something ‘hatke’.

Bhalobashar Chingri Prawns Recipe

Happy after recovering from a bout of fever, cough and cold, I went to market and picked up my favourite medium-sized Golda Chingri (Large Prawns). It was fresh too.

Though at home my wife had ordered our cook to prepare some Rohu curry, I told her to keep the Rohu back in the fridge. It’s going to be Prawn Day today! I asked our cook to dress up the prawns and keep the heads for making some Pakoras later.

I cooked a simple prawn curry following my own will…… no predicted recipe as such. It turned out so lovely with its flavour, hue and taste that I coined my curry as Bhalobasar Chingri (Lovingly Prawns).

Try them out with love. 🙂

Ingredients for Prawn Curry:

1. Golda Chingri – 500 g (12 nice medium sized prawns)
2. Coconut milk – 1 tetra-pack content (Dabur brand)
3. Ginger paste –½ tbsp.
4. Green chili – 3 (Slit lengthwise)
5. Tomato – 1 medium (cut in small pieces)
6. Cardamom powder – A pinch
7. Cinnamon powder – A pinch
8. Curry leaves – 1 sprig
9. Fenugreek seeds – A pinch
10. Mustard seeds – ¼ tsp.
11. Salt – Add to taste
