Unakka Chemmeen Chammanthi Podichathu / Dry Prawns Chutney Powder :)....

My dad loves fish and he insisted on having fish every day. So when fresh fish was not available mom used to make curries like chemmenum mangayum, unakka meenum vazhakkayum,unakka meenum murigakkayum or dry side dishes like unakkameen varuthathu, unakkameen chamanthi or this chammanthi podi. Recently I grabbed a packet of dry prawns and I phoned my mom’s sister for the recipe ;) This easy to make quick side dish goes very well with boiled rice and is best served with Kanji (rice gruel) :)...…Yummy….:)

Unakka Chemmeen Chammanthi Podichathu (Dry Prawns Chutney Powder)

Clean Dry Prawns-150gm
Chumannulli / Shallots-10
Grated Coconut- 1 ½ cups
Green Chillies-3-4
Curry Leaves-1 stalk

Grind coarsely all the ingredients together in a mixy. Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan and sauté the ground mixture stirring well, add salt if necessary. Serve hot as a side dish with Kanji (rice gruel) or with rice, curd and a mezhukkupuratti or thoran.
