Dry prawn kismur is a popular dish in Goa, which is served along with rice. It is a day to day dish in every house like the Chutney’s used in South Indian homes.
I just fell in love with Kismur the moment I had the Goan Thali meals and decided to make it as soon as I got back home.
|Typical Goan Kismur|
Dry prawns 1 Cup
Tamarind One lemon size
Kokum 2-3 pieces
Red Chilli powder 1 tsp
