Prawn Coconut Stir Fry

Prawn Coconut Fry is a mouthwatering side dish!Deliciously seasoned prawns fried  along with crispy crunchy coconut.This is my mom’s recipe which is very close to my heart.Small shrimps are more tastier than the jumbo ones,it has that nice prawny  flavor,so i love to use small ones!

Here coconuts are stir fried along with prawns in low flame until you get that nice reddish brown color to the coconut and prawns.For best result use coconut oil.We need to stir it in between to ensure it’s not burning.This is a lovely combination with rice!
