 Prawn and Raw Mango Curry

Mangalore, Coastal Konkan Region and Goa has its own distinct unique cuisine. Fish/ Prawn curry with rice is staple diet for most Konkan Region people.

This prawn curry recipe is the original recipe used in Konkan Region. This prawn curry is a dish I often prepare because it is delicious, spicy and having lots of flavours. This very popular South Indian curry can be prepared quickly using very less oil.

Use of byadagi chilli and red round chilli in fish/ prawn curry is common in Mangalore, Goa and Konkan region. Byadagi chilli is deep red and less spicy.

It is less pungent than other chilli varieties. It is widely used in South Indian cuisine. Combination of red round chilli and byadagi chilli gives a unique flavour and taste to the fish/ prawn curry. You will find most unique and interesting prawn curry recipe here.
