Prawns in coconut mustard sauce !

Another easy yet mouthwatering prawn delicacy. Bengal special. Slurp!

You will need:
prawns/shrimps 500 gm.
1 and a half cup of coconut (grated and made into a paste)
half a cup of black mustard
3 green chilies
2 tablespoons of sugar
salt to taste
half a cup of mustard oil
A pinch of turmeric powder

how to do it:
Moisten the mustard and grind it along with one green chilly and a pinch of salt.That would prevent this paste from turning bitter.
Wash and de-vein the shrimps/prawns, leave the heads on if you want to.
Marinate them in salt and turmeric.
In a pressure cooker, pour all the other ingredients.
Add the prawns/shrimps as well.
Add half a cup of water.
Put the lid on and wait for 3 to 4 whistles.
Check for seasoning.
This tastes almost orgasmic with plain rice or luchi.
