Prawn Malai Curry

I love prawns / shrimps and like to prepare them in a curd gravy (Malai Curry) or steamed (Bhapa). Well Prawn Malai Curry is one of the popular mouth watering delicacy of Bengal, served with steamed rice, daals and curries.
I tried the instructions given in the microwave cookbook, altered a little (I didnt use mustard paste / sauce) but it turned out just as delicious....


  • 300 gms (10-12) medium sized prawns (deveined & washed)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup curd (beaten)
  • 2 tbsp onion paste
  • 1-1/2 tbsp mustard oil
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tsp salt (to taste)

  1. Take the prawns in a bowl and add the ingredients of the marinade (coconut milk, curd, turmeric, salt and red chilli powder). Mix well and keep aside for 30 mins.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, heat oil at 100% power for 30 secs. Add the onion paste and microwave at 100% power for 4 mins (keep stirring in between).
  3. Add the marinated prawns. Cover and microwave at 60% power for 8 mins. (Stir after 4 mins).
  4. Allow to stand covered for 5 mins. Serve hot with steamed rice.
