  1. Firstly Let me know what do I do with the 1 chopped Onion. Secondly Please add Tomato in the list of Ingredients. Last but not the least….kindly add how much water to add. With only 1/2 cup of coconut water what gravy can you expect.
    You wasted my Rs. 200 Prawns. Kindly re-type with changes or delete the reciepy.

  2. Thanks Anita this tasted great!
    I didnt have any tamarind but I added lime for sourness and used dried fenugreek leaves instead of the seeds for the same reason. I was really impressed!
    Next time I want to try it with the tamarind
    :-)
