    From The Google.

    Your own post comes up as the fifth hit when using teh google. Surrounding it are many, many other links with receipes for this dish. Sounds interesting.

    Just in case, http://www.google.com.

        This may sound stupid, but why don't you ask your friend?

          For a minute I thought it said "Prawn Mallomar curry," and was very confused, as those are two tastes I wouldn't want to combine.

          Those recipes look great. I love curry. It's too bad the two Thai places in my area are both gone, one gone out of business and one destroyed in a fire.

            Percy...
            Welcome to Roadfood.

            I agree with Exsquidao...ask your friend...for the following reasons:

            1. You liked it when you ate it
            2. It will flatter your friend
            3. It won't appear like you are fishing around here with answers like:
            "I am looking for personal recipe. Something tried and tested."

            I see that you are new to the website..and we are all generally very nice folks..hope you find a recipe...and then share it with others here.

              Thanx for the welcome.

              But i am quite surprised that instead of telling me the recipe people are more interested in y i didn't ask my friend.

              Well I did ask my friend. He told me that it was some Indian guest of his aunt who had prepared it for the dinner. We are trying to get in touch with them. But that might take some time.

              I have a small party for the vkend so was thinking of trying it out on my own.

              But i guess i will wait. And i don't know what C Turner Joy means by

                Hi Percy,

                I am from India, from a state similar to Kerala but more than a thousand miles distant. Otherwise I would have gladly given you detailed recipes for the recipes from my region that also include a lot of seafood. At the risk of arousing your ire, I would like to refer you to two sites:

                http://www.anothersubcontinent.com/forums/index.php?act=SF&s=&f=10

                http://www.gourmetindia.net/forums/

                These are places where Indians discuss their own regional cuisines. Many are true experts and love to help others learn about their cooking. The question you ask is not simply answered because there is no one answer. There is NO standard "Malabar prawn curry". First, one has to understand that there are various endgamous communities on the Malabar coast, like the Syrian Christians or the Muslims, each with distinct ways of cooking the same foods. Then, something widely available and popular, like shrimp is prepared in numerous ways, each of which has a distinct name,lumped into the catch-all "curry" in America for English-speaking friends, as a matter of mutual convenience. Would "Theeyal" or "Ularthiyathu" or 'thoran" make any more sense under the circumstance of a guest invited for dinner?

                There are many sites and blogs for Kerala recipes, as you may have discovered, many of them difficult to decipher in terms of language as well as the actual cooking insructions. For instance, curry leaves, Kodampuli [a type of our fruit, a species of Garcinia different from another Gacinia sold as kokum in Indian groceries. Both are souring agents but the kodampuli is what gives Kerala fish dishes their characteritic flavor] and various thicknesses of coconut milk are called for. If you have any problems I shall be happy to answer your questions and interpret the recipe directions for you.

                Don't get discouraged. We can break down the seemingly intractable recipes into small steps and they will come out fine. Friends' mothers however have had years of practice, and they bring to the US fresh POUNDED spices fom India of a quality not available here. So there is that caveat.
