Neyveli Eral Kuzhambu | Prawns Curry

Out five star high protein and low calorie shell fish recipe. Neyveli Eral Kuzhambu (prawns curry) is exceedingly fast to cook. My aunt Geetha Suresh shared this recipe. 
I  bought the shrimps at a local Chinese grocery store and made it over lazy Sunday's dinner.

My husband instantly loved this scrumptious recipe.  The flavors of fresh shrimp taker over other ingredients in the curry. Trust me, I have made shrimp curry with frozen shrimp. It is rubbery and doesn't taste as good as the fresh ones. The condiments and raw spices add a very good taste to the pallet. 

This is the recipe for a good pallet.

1 stick Cinnamon
