Chilli Prawn / How to make Chilli Prawn

Who all are prawn lover here?  Because today I am sharing a prawn recipe. Many people love prawn, some do not and some cannot have them if they are allergic to it (just like me). However, we rarely bring prawn at home and I eat small portion of it. Last year when we visited USA we had lovely fresh shrimp preparation in a restaurant (Bubba Gump Shrimp Company) near Monterey Bay Aquarium. Just sitting on the side of the window, watching the Pacific ocean and enjoying shrimp with a glass of mocktail! Memories are so refreshing, it took me back to that time. Have you read my post of Monterey Bay Aquarium visit? It was a wonderful visit, hope to visit soon there.

Last week when we purchased shrimp I decided this time I will prepare something different. Because every time I prepare Prawn Malai Curry because my husband love it. I had some yellow and red bell peppers in my pantry so immediately I decided the menu ----- Chilli Prawn and Bell Pepper Fried Rice.  Believe me the combination came out just awesome.  This combination took very less time and you can enjoy a restaurant style food at home. Sometimes smart thinking helps to get the pat on your back :). Everyone at home enjoyed the meal. If you are deciding a party or small get together and if your guests love prawn you can definitely try this dish.

Chingri Malai Curry / Prawn Malai Curry

Chingri Malai Curry or Prawn Malai Curry is weakness for any bong :). However, my case was a bit different. I used to have chingri (prawn) in my childhood. When I was a teenager, I became allergic whenever I ate this delicious food. The result was I had to stop eating prawns. As I said its the weakness of any bong and my husband was not exceptional. After our marriage, he said "eat prawn once again, your allergy must have gone away, if not I am ready with emergency". I had prawn malai curry after so many years and guess what I was not allergic any more. I prepared it so many times however never updated the recipe here. First time I am going to share a prawn recipe here.
