Prawn Bilimbi Sukka

Prawn Bilimbi Sukka

The Prawn Bilimbi Sukka is a zero oil recipe. It is a steamed preparation made with the seasonal bilimbi / bimbla, fresh shelled prawns and grated coconut. The mild sourness of the bilimbi, the sweetness of the coconut and the flavor of the prawns complement each other. Serve this as a side with rice and a plain curry like Sorak (Goan plain coconut curry – see here)
