    The use of red chillies is too much for 1/4 kg of prawns. Must reduce up to 5 which goes well with white pumpkin...

    Hello friends,

    The above recipe can turn out equally good with bhopla or kuvalo. It is a favorite in my house. For a variation and keeping the quantity in mind i would use 5 madras and 5 kashmiri chillies and reduce coriander seeds to 1 tsp or else u get a strong smell. Instead of boiling pumpkin in water, i fry a tomato in oil, when cooked add 1 tsp of ginger garlic paste and add kuvalo/bhopa and prawns to cook and then add ground spices. Try and u will enjoy.

    Dear Lavina Senan,
    This recipe is for Prawn with white pumpkin ( boblem) and not ash pumpkin (kuvalo). That is the reason for the disaster my dear.

    This masala is for Chicken/Meat. I tried it out with Prawn and Kuvolow and it was a disaster.
