I know I have been MIA for quite some time here but I am back now with a lipsmacking prawn dish from the Parsi kitchen!
The reason for being MIA is that my parents are visiting me from India for the next couple of months. And I am meeting them after five long years guys, so you can imagine my excitement. I can hardly think of work; every single moment is spent chatting with them and taking them around the city and neighbouring places.
And pampering them with loads of deliciousness.
I have never had the opportunity to cook for them before for such a long period of time. And now I don the blogger status too, so treating them to all sorts of new dishes and cuisines, both at home and at restaurants. After all, Melbourne is indeed the food capital of the world.
With seafood being a family favourite, I decided to treat them to Tatrelo Kolmi Patio, a delicious Parsi style prawn dish.
The Parsi cuisine is rich, varied and full of delicious recipes especially more if you are a seafood lover. This prawns patio is simple, easy to prepare but so full of flavour that you will find yourself making it over and over again.
The combination of vinegar and jaggery along with the spices and aromatics add a punch to the flavours yet not overpowering. The spices are subtle and only highlight the taste of the meaty tiger prawns. Make sure that the dish has a semi-dry consistency which is when the masala coats around the prawns for a delicious mouthful.
And there’s only way to enjoy this best – with steaming hot rice and a simple dal. Tuck in!
