Coconut Prawns Fry

While travelling to Goa,  we stopped for lunch at a small hotel at somewhere in Karnataka (I don’t remember exact place or hotel name).  we ordered fish curry meals, along with meals they served one fish side dish which we liked very much.   The taste of the side dish was in my mind for a long time and I thought of preparing a fish dish inspired by those flavours.   I thought that masala wlll be more suitable for prawns.   Without wasting time, I tried  this with prawns and it came out better than expected. I am sure that you all will love it.
