Chingri Diye Maan Kachu Bata

Ingredients to make Chingri Diye Maan Kachu Bata

  • 200 gms of Malanga Coco root or Maan Kachu
  • 200 gms of shelled and deveined prawns
  • A pinch of turmeric
  • Salt to taste
  • 3-4 green chili (as per your taste actually, I like mine a bit hot)
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds (soaked it water for 30 mins)
  • 1/3 cup of mustard oil

How to make Chingri Diye Maan Kachu Bata

  1. Wash and cut the root into really small pieces. Keep aside.
  2. Boil the prawns in 2 tbsp of water just long enough for it to look white and not glassy.
  3. Add the sliced root, prawns, chillies, mustard seeds, salt to taste and about 1/3 cup of mustard oil and grind this into a smooth paste.
  4. Serve with hot rice and lots of love

My Tip:

Boil the prawns in water just long enough for it to look white and not glassy. It took me 1 min in boiling water for the small sized prawns I was cooking to firm up. The time will depend on how big the prawns are.
