Hinga Sungta

Ingredients to make Hinga Sungta

  • Cleaned Prawns Medium sized - 1 cup
  • turmeric Powder - 1/4 Tsp
  • Grated coconut- 1.5 cup
  • Red chilis - 4 (more if you want spicy)
  • tamarind paste - 1 tbsp
  • salt per taste
  • asafoetida (Hing)  1/2 tsp
  • coconut Oil 1 tsp
  • water 2 cups

How to make Hinga Sungta

  1. Mix turmeric powder with the cleaned prawns and keep aside. Make a fresh paste of coconut, red-chilies, tamarind and salt. It should be very smooth.
  2. Mix the prawns in this paste, add water and cook in a pan on a medium flame for 7-10 minutes. Add hing and coconut oil to it.
  3. Cook for 2 minutes and you are done. The consistency of the gravy should bea little thick. Serve with bread or steamed rice.

My Tip:

There is no replacement of coconut-oil in this dish if you do not like it. I would suggest to try the flavour once.
