Prawns In Green Curry | Spinach Prawn Curry | Prawn Green Curry With Paneer Roti | Guest Post By Usha

Hello friends, today we have a guest who will be sharing her two delicious recipes with us. Let me introduce you to, our today's guest; Usha Rani who blogs at, Mahas Lovley Home and a mom of two adorable boys. I really wonder and ponder, about how she is able to blog regularly, even with kids around. Not one, but two spirited boys!! I must appreciate her passion for blogging and cooking. You can find some yummy recipes on her space that will make you hungry. Do visit her space to know more about her and her recipes. As far as, I know, Usha is an innocent person, a loving & caring wife, a wonderful mom and a good friend too. So much to say, but I do not want to keep you waiting further more. Lets check out what she has to share here with us. A finger-licking Prawn green curry and Tasty Paneer roti, a fabulous combo for sure!! Thank you Usha for voluntarily offering a guest post and am really happy to have you on my space.

  • Now throw in the prawns and stir well. If the gravy looks thick add some water and mix well.

  4. Place a tawa on flame and toast the rotis on high flame. Flip sides and cook until you find brown spots on each side. Do not over cook them else they will become rubbery.
