Goan Prawn Curry Ingredients: Prawns - 750 grams Onions - 1 large, ground to a paste 2 medium, sliced finely Bay leaves - 3 Coconut Milk - 1 cup thick and 1 cup thin (milk can be extracted from one large coconut, or tinned coconut milk may also be used) Green Cardamom - 3 to 5 Salt to taste Oil for frying Method: Wash and dry the prawns in a kitchen towel. Set aside. Heat oil in a wok (kadai). Add bay leaves and green cardamom and fry for a few minutes. Add sliced onions and fry till golden brown. Then add the ground onion paste . Fry for several minutes adding little water, as necessary, to prevent the masala from burning. Add the prawns. Stir thoroughly and then add the thin coconut milk. Keep simmering in high heat till the gravy reduces to a half. Add salt to taste. Finally add thick coconut milk and simmer in medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes. Serve hot with rice. ..this is my favourite with steamed rice very aromatic..

I will bookmark this discussion and the one where you requested the chicken curry recipe and respond later today. I have a lot to get done this morning, but I'll look up my recipes later today and post them for you. The trick that I use to moderate a curry is that my style is closer to northern India/Thai. I use coconut cream in my cooking. This has a tendency to make it milder and more flavorful.
