Goan Prawn Curry


Goa, my favourite holiday destination, infact Goa is like 2nd home for us...
Love the beaches, the sunsets, the food and most of all the happy-go-lucky nature and the hospitality of the local people.
I enjoy going to Goa as often as possible, stay in different places and experience the local culture and food.


On one such trips, I saw this tiny shack on Colva beach, where a lady was cooking sea food which was not just fresh, but also tasty and clean.
We had s simple meal, Goan prawn curry meal, which had red rice, Goan prawn curry and dry prawn salad called "kismori" which I will post another day.
I somehow managed to get some details abt the Goan prawn curry from that kind lady.
