Simple Thali / Saadi Boshi # 4

These Dry prawns Curry is similar to sorak curry (Sorak – Mean Curry in Konkani) dry prawns  curry tastes great with stem rice and fish fry, along with raw mango pickle, or we goan call it tor for raw mango, we dont use any spices in these pickle, As a kid i still remember we also relish this pick with cooked rice with water called Kanjji or Paez.


Clean the Prawns, discard the head and It is important to wash nicely before using for the curry, and I also soak the prawn in lukewarm  water for 5 minutes and then strainer before adding to the curry. The aroma of curry feel for a second like i am at my home in goa and now monsoon in goa it’s and prefect thali to relish. With Raw mango / Tor pickle i love the crunch of the pickle with garlic and green chilly.

      1. Linda, I would seriously take you up on the parcel:) I went to a so called “Goan” restaurant near LA and it was not at all what I expected. Your recipes are the authentic stuff.
