Kerala Prawn Curry

{{totalReview}}
While every family in Kerala probably has their own version of making this spicy and sour red curry, this recipe offers a simple yet wholesome version that you can easily recreate in your own kitchen. Using fresh and juicy prawns as the main protein, this seafood variation adds a subtle sweetness to the fragrant curry which consists of a perfect blend of spices and aromatics. As with most Indian curries, this dish is best eaten with rice or flatbreads like naan, prata or chapati
