  4. Cover the hole on green coconut and put it into the microwave oven.Set your highest temp for 15 mins. When done.Take out the prawns with gravy and also the melted soft coconut cream to serve.
  5. Serve with steamed plain rice.

My Tip:

The green coconut must have soft cream (malai) inside it. Cut the bottom of coconut so that it can be fitted inside a microwave Don't over fry prawns. before serving you must mix the soft melted cream of green coconut from inside the wall of coconut into the gravy.
