Prawn and Radish Kaara Kuzhambu/ Curry

I have been craving for my mom's cooking for the past few days, I have been cooking for many years now but still nothing beats my mom's cooking maybe because she mixes the spices with the right amount  and pour lots of love in what ever she cooks. Ma, I love you so much! Now coming back to today's recipe mom makes this curry so well and the taste lingers in our tongue even after so many hours having it. I have tried making this curry as similar to mom's, radish is a very nutritious and contains very low calorie, it also very useful in treating constipation and detox the body. Mom always says that radish also prevents and fights urinary tract infection and excellent kidney cleanser.

Now let us look at how to make this curry;


5 small radish (sliced thinly)
1 cup of prawns (cleaned)
1 tomato (chopped)
1 onion (sliced)
1 tsp of ginger garlic paste
1 tsp of fenugreek seed
1/4 tsp of turmeric powder
1 tsp of chilli powder
1 tbsp of meat curry powder
1/2 cup of tamarind juice
1 sprig of curry leaves
2 green chili (slit)
2 tbsp of oil
Salt to taste

In a pan, heat oil and fry fenugreek seed, curry leaves, onion, green chilli and ginger garlic paste. Then add the sliced radish until its almost soft and slightly browned, now add enough water and turmeric, chilli and meat curry powder and let it boil until the raw smell of the spices are gone. Boil the gravy further until it reduces a little and add salt and prawn.

Finally pour the tamarind juice and let it simmer for a couple of minutes. Finally add in sliced tomatoes and turn off the flame and cover the pan. Now our Prawn and Radish Kaara Kuzhambu is ready to be served.

Do try and let me know how was it!
