Chemmeen-Vellarikka-Muringa-Manga curry

My neighbour aunty used to say that prawns prepared with Vellarikka, muringa and Manga tasted excellent but I never tried it till I saw Sareetha Sugunan post in a Food page in which she had tried  Chemmeen-Muringa curry.  Seeing her post I got very much tempted then I decided to prepare the curry with neighbour aunty’s guidance.  This is my Republic Day special Recipe.  Its really very tasty curry.
Chemmeen/prawns                           250 g
Vellarika/yellow cucumber              1 cup
Drumstick                                             1
Raw mango                                          1
Onion chopped                                    2
Tomato chopped                                 2
Mustard seeds                                     1 tsp
Green chilly silt                                    2
Chilly powder                                       1 tbsp
Coriander powder                               1 tsp
Curry leaves few
For Masala
Grated coconut                                 1 cup
Jeera                                                    1 tsp
Fennel seed                                        1 tsp
Turmeric powder                               ½  tsp
Grind  grated coconut, jeera, fennel seeds and turmeric into fine paste.
In a mud pot cook prawns, drumstick  and  yellow cucumber with salt till done.  Heat oil in kadai splutter mustard seeds then add curry leaves.  Then add onion fry till light pink then add chopped tomato and green chilly fry for a min. Then add chilly powder, coriander powder fry for 2 min  then add chopped tomatoes cover and cook till tomato becomes soft then add cooked prawns  and grind masala and mix well. Boil it for  10 to 15 min so that masala coat fish properly.  Serve with boiled rice.
