  1. Chemmeen theeyal / Konchu theeyal or Prawn curry is a traditional Kerala curry. You can have it with lunch or breakfast. So let’s start.
  2. First, we have to prepare Coconut masala. For that heat a teaspoon Coconut oil in a pan and add a cup of Grated Coconut and roast it.
  3. Next, we will add a piece of Ginger chopped and a teaspoon Black pepper and roast it.
  4. When the colour of the coconut changed to brown colour, we will add a teaspoon Chilly powder and one and a half teaspoon Coriander powder. Mix well
  5. When it’s roasted enough, we will remove it from flame and grind it to a paste with enough water. Keep it aside.
