Can you hear the call of Prawn Patia, a Parsi shrimp curry? It will cure what ails you and make you come back for more.
Prawn Patia is a dish that is usually served on auspicious occasions along with Mori Dal. It took me a few years to get this dish right. Yes, I said years! It is hard to make a dish that you have never had. I was always chasing my husband’s memory of his Mom’s Patia. The problem was that I had never had his Mom’s Patia. She passed away before we met. I do have her recipe but like any good cook she threw in a little bit of this and that without writing it down. Finally I gave up trying to chase a memory of a recipe and just started working on what I thought Prawn Patia should be. When I did that, I finally found my version of the perfect Prawn Patia.
Cook up some magic yourself. Who knows, maybe the deliciousness of the meal will cast a spell on your family to do the dishes for you! It will certainly make your dinner dreams come true.
