Prawns Moilee

You want some thing scrumptious in Jiffy??
You have a hand full of fresh prawns and a cup of coconut milk??
If answer is yes,Come with me, I will explain one simplest way of making delicious Prawns moilee.

We tasted this curry with appam first from one restaurant in Dubai.Wow!!Our tastebuds hooked into that dish.Thereafter we started going to that restaurant for having same dish on all weekends ,Weeks passed like that ,Once we went there with same desire ,but that time they were serving only buffet ..Taking buffet that time was really waste for us..So I decided to try that moliee at home .Luckily I got that same taste and same colour but the prawns they used to make were tiger prawns and they kept the tail part attached to the body for good look ..
:) As per RP prawns are not photogenic,Now I agree with you..Mine also in that category


250 gms prawns cleaned
1 small onion sliced
1 clove sliced garlic(optional)
1 inch sliced ginger
1 sprig curry leaves
1 large tomato sliced
2-3 green chillies,slit lengthwise
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
½ tsp chili powder
1tbsp vinegar
1 cup thick coconut milk
salt to taste


Heat oil in a pan and saute onion,garlic,ginger,green chillies and curry leaves until brown.
Add all the powders and saute for a minute.
Add prawns and cook for few minutes in slow fire then add tomatoes ,keep that in fire for few more minutes.
Add coconut milk ,Remain in fire until it starts making bubbles.
Drizzle vinegar and serve.
