For  weekend special lunch Ma (Mother) cook prawn in mango mustard sauce, a delicious recipe for all of us. When Ma cooks anything it taste awesome but this simple recipe break all the records for its soothing summery taste. I want to share this simple yet elegant recipe with you all and I am sure this will be in your fav list soon. This is a traditional Indian recipe so I will give you the ingredients that are traditionally used, so that you get   the authentic taste.

Jumbo prawn     2 to 3 deveined
or medium size   6 to 8
Turmeric powder    1/8 teaspoon
Mustard paste      2 table spoon
Raw  mango pulp    3 to 4 table spoon
Green chilly       2 to 3 cut in halves lengthwise
Coconut milk       1/2  cup
Mustard oil        1 1/2 table spoon
Sugar             1/4  teaspoon
Salt              according to taste


Take the clean and deveined prawn and marinate with salt and turmeric powder. Sauté this prawn for 1 minute in 1/2 table spoon of oil(if mustard oil is not available or you don’t like the a taste you can use any vegetable oil) and keep aside. Now take another pan pour 1 table spoon of oil. Let it warm then give mustard paste dilute it in water. Stir then add the raw mango pulp. Stir for one minute then add salt, sugar and green chili and the sautéed fish. Mix well. Cover it with lid. Let it reduce a little then add coconut milk. Let it cook for 1 to 2 minutes and your prawn in mango mustard sauce is ready to serve. This prawn in mango mustard sauce goes best with steamed basmati rice. Raw mango pulp gives a sour taste to this sauce which gives perfect taste relief in a hot summer day. So have it and love it.
