ABOUT Jumbo Prawns in Coconut Milk RECIPE

Chingri Malaikari or Prawn Malaikari is a very famous and popular Bengali dish served with white Rice or Pulao for lunch or dinner on special occasions. I saw it described somewhere as an “Elegant Bengali Classic” – that definitely sums up this dish. It is so delicious that I want to run down and have my dinner right now instead of writing this up!
