Prawns & Ladyfinger curry / Sungta Ani Bhende Kodi, Sungta mean Prawns, Ani – Mean and, Bhende -mean Ladyfingers, Kodi – mean Curry, in Goa Konkani, which is very popular in Goa, which is served in a regular & normal meal, without fish curry or seafood the goan food is an incomplete meal, this curry is very special as coconut is used and I am a big fan of coconut and pretty sure like me many more out there, this curry is special ground the ingredient on granite stone a Traditional Goan Blender, I still remember my granny and my mum use to blend this curry paste on granite stone, which can’t be compared with any brand of blender. It has a unique flavour and blends so well and a relish treat.
This curry normally prepares in Clay Pot – which is called Kundle in Goan Konkani, and that taste & flavour speechless, the curry /Kodi paste is ground with fresh coconut, cumin seeds, coriander seed, peppercorns, red Kashmiri chillis, and cloves, blend to smooth paste and saute the onion and tomatoes, and add the blended ingredient along with ladyfingers and prawns, Kokum /Gracinia Indica and dash of sugar, the house is full with the aroma, and I am so hungry before the outcome, and really feel so thirsty to sip a big spoon really I love to sip coconut curry :-P, at home every plate are a wash, before I clean whenever I prepare this beauty meal.
Health Benefit for Kokum / Gracinia Indica :
Kokum / Gracinia Indica is an excellent source of anti-oxidants, it helps to minimize the impact of many diseases.
It is also used for allergic rashes on the skin, it is also used for indigestion, the Kokum is mix along with black pepper and salt and drink.
I still remember every Goan Restaurant Kokum water is served and I always relish it.
