Crab & Prawn Ros Curry

Crab & Prawn Ros Curry (Coconut Milk Curry)

I had bought some really fresh crabs and prawns and couldn’t quite decide what to make for lunch that day. I just could not bear keeping one of the two in the freezer for later use. I knew they were yum by the looks of them. So I decided to use one of my curries to make a Crab & Prawn Ros Curry (Ros is coconut milk!). I patted myself 😆 and got some praise from hubby dear too. Because this curry turned out to be super yummilicious.

Serves: 6 Persons

Prep. Time: 30 Mins.

Cooking Time:  16 to 18 Mins.

  • Crabs – 5 to 6 small
  • Prawns – 5 large

  • Green Chillies (Slit) – 2 to 3
  • For the Spiced Coconut Milk:
    • Coconut (grated) – 1 ½ cups
    • Tamarind – 1 marble sized ball
    • Jeera [Cumin] Seeds – ½ tsp.
    • Corriander Seeds – 2 tsp.

Tips:

  • An electric stone grinder gives a creamier curry. If using an electric grinder to grind the ingredients for the spiced coconut milk, then add all the water at one go.
  • If using a mixer, extract the spiced coconut milk using the same batch of ingredients twice, with 1 ¼ cup and again with 1 ¼ cup water on each occasion.
