Chingri Macher Malaikari, Prawn/Shrimp Malai Curry  

chingri-malaicurry

Chingri Malai curry is an all-time favourite Bengali dish. Malai curry is perfect for dinner parties. For today’s preparation I prefer large prawns with heads on. The Chingri Macher Malai tastes extremely great with steamed white rice or jeera rice. Make sure to cook prawn right way as prawn overcooks a lot more easilly than it undercooks.

Put rest of the oil in the kadai and pour the above paste . When the curry thickens, spread the prawn,salt , sugar and water . When you cook the prawn in the curry sauce make sure don’t overcook it though, because then it becomes tough and rubbery. Lastly add the Garam Masala Powder evenly all around the pan.
