Sungta Ani Botate (Prawn & Potato Curry ~ Mangalorean Catholic Style)



Ola people! Here I am sitting in the heart of Mangalore writing down a recipe that is a favourite among many Mangaloreans except me. Well, I am sure it would have been if I ate prawns, but since I don't we postponed even preparing this dish while in Dubai. We wanted to have the curry made by my mum in law who is an amazing cook and she cheerfully obliged. So off went Roshan to the fish market. He chose a fine batch of prawns and cleaned them himself. I helped my mum-in-law grind the masala and the 'hult' (taste check/adjustment) was done by her. It was a case of one too many cooks that didn't spoil the broth. The resultant curry was this lovely spicy-tangy one with prawns and potatoes floating in harmony.
