Sorshe Chingri | Prawn In Mustard sauce (Tawa Method)

Good Evening Friends !  Here is time to share one more traditional Bengali recipe of prawn or shrimp. Who does not love prawn? I think everyone. Kids are always happy to have prawn too. And Bengalis are all time food lovers. So in their food list prawn plays an important role too. You will laugh to here that prawn signifies one specific culture of Bengalis. "Ghoti" means the water pot , it is called to them who were living in west Bengal before the partition of Bengal. So earlier when any football match has been occurred with East Bengal , ghotis were present with there prawn symbol and East Bengalis were presents with the symbol of Hilsha Fish. Can you believe ? Yes its true. But It is just historic, now we all are same .

Anyway lets start about the prawn recipe. It is really a tempting , easy fish recipe I ever like. It has two directions to prepare. One is called Chingri Bhape and another one the simple kadai or tawa method.
In Bhape method it has to be keep in a tifin carrier with lid and steam into pressure cooker. But today sharing the simple one, follow the instruction exactly how to make it...Hope you will love it with Plain rice or Jeera rice. A typical Bengali food from my kitchen.
