Chingri malai curry (Bengali: চিংড়ি মালাই কারি) also known as Prawn malai curry, is a Bengali curry made from prawns and coconut milk and flavoured with spices.[1] The dish is popular throughout Bengal[2][3] and is served during weddings and celebrations, or for guests,[4][page needed] and was also very popular among the British in Calcutta.[5][page needed]

Ingredients

The main ingredients are prawns and coconut milk, along with ghee or mustard oil, onions, turmeric powder, chopped green chilli, garlic paste, and ginger paste flavoured with spices.[6]

Lobster malai curry is a variation of this dish.[7]

Preparation

The hard shells of the prawns are removed and marinated. The prawns are then fried in hot oil along with onion, ginger, garlic, and stirred with turmeric and sugar and salt and coconut milk for a few minutes.[8]
