Chemeen Pachakaya Varutharacha Curry Recipe

Here I am adding pachakkaya(raw plantain) with chemeen which adds a splendid taste. The shredded or grated coconut is slightly roasted with onions, coriander powder, turmeric powder, chilly powder and made into paste. The prawns and raw banana cooked in this mixture and kudampuli (gambooge) spreads a tempting aroma. I prefer to cook seafoods in manchatti(earthen vessel) which will enhance the taste.
