Prawns and Potatoes in Spicy Red Curry

6 Feb

This Goan recipe is not seen in many households like most of the popular Goan recipes. But what I do remember most about this Prawn/Shrimps and Potatoes Curry is that at my home it was made mostly on Fridays and during lent. As IΒ  asked around to make this recipe I found out that some Goan’s knew about this recipe and some did not.

prawn-and-potatoes-goan-red-spicy-curry-recipeYou will be surprised that potatoes with prawn/shrimp really work. It is just like a good hearty bowl of Clam Chowder which is made with clams and potatoes but with a lot of heat. If you live in Los Angeles and have visited the San Pedro Fish Market then it is almost close to the Famous Shrimp and Potato Fajita that they make. On a side note the one that you find at Redondo Beach is not as close to what they make in San Pedro.

5-6 whole cloves

4 garlic cloves

1/4 tsp of whole cumin seeds

    I’m happy you started by making the analogy of clam chowder to convince us that shrimp and potatoes really do go together!

        I have to say some of your cooking resembles Malay cuisines…
        Well, Malay language is kinda influenced by Portuguese language perhaps cuisines too as Goan dishes..X.

        • Nandini June 12, 2015 at 6:45 pm #

          You sure may be right if that is the case πŸ™‚
