GALDA CHINGRI BHAPE (STEAMED SCAMPI / TIGER PRAWNS) - A MICROWAVE VERSION

"Galda Chingri Bhape" is an authentic Bengali Recipe, which is prepared in every household since ages. It goes best with warm steamed rice, but some people serve it with pulao too. Pungent taste of mustard paste with mustard oil makes it more appealing. Soft meat of this scampi has a very distinct flavour if cooked perfectly, little sweet in taste, it is just mouth-melting!

INGREDIENTS:
1&1/2 kgs Indian Scampi / Tiger Prawns (galda chingri)
3/4 Cup Plain Yogurt (thick curd)
1&1/2 tsps Turmeric Powder
2 tsp Green Chillies Paste
6-8 Green Chillies (or as per taste), cut in slits
1/2 Cup Grated Coconut
3 tbsps Poppy Seeds Paste
6 tbsps Mustard Paste
6-8 tbsps Mustard Oil
Salt to taste

METHOD:
Clean and wash the tiger prawns. In a microwave safe bowl, marinate prawns with turmeric powder and salt. Keep aside for 15-30 minutes.

Add mustard paste, green chilli paste, poppy seeds paste, coconut and salt to the prawn mix. Now add yogurt and mustards oil in it. Mix it well. Arrange green chillies on the top.

Place the bowl in microwave. Micro at 100% MW power for 5 minutes.

Take out the bowl from the oven now, turn the prawns in the bowl to expose other sides. Adjust salt. Microwave for another 5 minutes at 100% MW power. Switch off the oven, keep it on stand time for 5 minutes more.

Serve hot with plain rice or pulao, its yummilicious!!!
