MANGALORE PRAWN CURRY / YETTI GASSI

Nostalgia : A sentiment or a wistful yearning for the happiness felt in a former time ,place or situation.

Nostalgia is always connected deeply to food memories…atleast in my case. Every dish I cook on a special day or in a special mood definitely has some emotions behind it. I did my graduation from St’Agnes college, Mangalore. So many beautiful memories are still alive and kicking in my mind around Mangalore.The carnivorous me was unlucky to be living in a vegetarian hostel. So every Sunday was looked forward for that restaurant visit to relish the non vegetarian delicacies I was missing throughout the week. Mangalore Prawn curry was one of those favorites of mine. I could order it only on Sunday with a full pocket money status. Today I am cooking Yetti Gassi for lunch and my mind is wondering around the giggles and innocence of my friends. I am so glad that many of us are living in the same city now and are able to get together once in a while.

Kerala style Prawn and raw mango curry (Cheemmen manga curry)

DSCN6682
Many of my friends and blog followers ask me about my much visible inclination towards sea foods . There is just one reason behind it Sweethearts and that is me being native of a very beautiful coastal area in Kerala. I grew up eating fresh seafood and rice as a staple diet. After getting married to a guy who keeps showing me different corners of the country in every 2 years, I kept on trying out new sea food dishes from those places too. Sadly, last 3 years in Assam was an exception as sea food was very rarely available there. Locals in Assam relish fresh water fish but I couldn’t develop a taste for it. Now I’m living in Hyderabad where sea food is in plenty. So I’m feasting myself with all the sea food I was craving for. 🙂

Prawns should not be over cooked as it becomes rubbery due to over cooking.

5. Heat one table-spoon oil in a small pan and fry onion till it turns dark brown. Add this along with the oil on top of the gravy. Mix gently just before serving
