Oh Calcutta: Chingri Maacher Malai Curry

Malai Curry

Chingri Maach=prawns/shrimp/related crustaceans; and malai curry refers to a preparation featuring coconut cream (malai)–there’s also a school of thought that holds that “malai” may refer to “Malay”. Anyway, we only got this because they were out of the Daab Chingri, a preparation of shrimp cooked with and served in a green coconut. Not bad at all.
