I really don`t understand why Ms.Rosy has used the rice into this curry...If it is for thickening the gravy..i don`t think its necessary to add rice when we use the desciated coconut...because i tried this today without rice and made by Anne`s suggestion, it came out so well...I really appreciate her spirit in helping others by giving suggestion...

Hi Guys...Here is a suggestion for the coconut milk ....You can cook the prawns with 1 1/2 cups of coconut milk and ground masala (desciated coconut & Rice). Otherwise add about 1 1/2 cups of hot water and cook the prawns. Once they are almost cooked add coconut milk and curry leaves and cook for sometime until the gravy is thickened..
