Chef Pillai's Coconut Milk Prawns Fry (Venad Paal Konch)

Last week I was  going through my instagram feeds and I stumbled upon Chef Pillai's Prawns fry recipe. This is also called as "Venad Paal Knoch". I love all his recipes and the way he explains his recipes are so amazing and crisp and clear. As we all love prawns in our house, I thought of trying this dish as soon as he posted it. The next day I tried and it was a huge hit in my house.

I know that it’s been a month since I posted a recipe, am so sorry. I am becoming very lazy or it might be because of my busy schedule but I will make sure that I will try to post once in a week. But Please try this dish as it is a guaranteed delicious which any seafood lover will love. 

This is a perfect dish/ appetizer for gatherings. The prawns that is fried in coconut milk is an absolutely dish to try for. I never fried prawns in coconut milk, but I know that when coconut milk is reduced it tastes yumm.. 

Today I am here with the recipe which will be a super hit among friends and family. The ingredients for this recipe is easily available in your pantry. Any variety of prawns can be used for this recipe. This dish is filled with flavors with basic spices.
