We all are very familiar with the dish Chingri Macher Malai Curry, but I thought of trying something different with the same idea. My hubby madly loves Prawns, so it is obvious that I have to make different types of dishes with this delicious sea food. Prawns are counted in the category of fish in bengal, and like all other fish lover Bengalis, I also try and taste a variety of dishes made with prawns. Today I made this rich Prawn Curry with White Coconut Gravy, which is another version of the famous Bengali dish Chingri Malai Curry, with a few ingredients and a twist of taste.
