  33. Lissie,
    This one came out nice. Whatever recipes I have tried so far (the ones that you have on this site), not just me but my whole family loved it :). My hubby wouldn’t even look at prawns earlier, he actually scolded me when I bought last time, but once I prepared and had it,he liked it so much.. Now I get to buy this every weekend 🙂 and he infact reminded me last weekend to buy prawns! Thanks to you and your wonderful recipes 🙂

  35. Priya,

    Thanks a lot for trying my recipes! All the recipes posted here are the ones I make at home on a regular basis. So you can be sure of the outcome and taste is guaranteed! 🙂

    hugs,
    Lissie

  36. Dear Ma’am, the dish came nicely , instead of adding 3tsp chilly powder i added 1.5 chill powder and 1.5 kashmiri chilly powder,as we don’t use chilly too much.. thanks..it was really good.

  37. I have tried this recipe and it really tasted great… Thanks a lot…!!!

  38. Such a nice blog. I’m going to try your Chemmeen curry. I’m even going to be brave and use 3 tsp chilly powder!! The coconut milk should mellow it down.
    Thanks

  39. Rahul, Thanks a lot for your appreciation! If you want to make it milder, use Kashmiri chilly powder. But the taste will be different. Use kudampuli if you can. Go ahead and be brave! 🙂
