Q. What is virgin coconut oil and how does it differ from other oils like vegetable or olive oil?
A. Virgin coconut oil is produced from fresh coconuts, unlike most other oils which are made from processed seeds and nuts.
Q. What can you use instead of virgin coconut oil to make your Kerala style prawns?
A. Virgin coconut oil may be difficult to find. If you're looking for a substitute, try using coconut oil. This will still give your dish a flavour of coconuts and enhance its texture.
Q. How do I clean and cook shrimp before cooking it in my Kerala style prawns?
A. Before cleaning shrimp, check if they have any unwanted bits on them like dirt or sand. The best way to clean shrimp is by submerging them in cold water with a little salt added until they sink to the bottom of the container. You should then take them out one at a time with tongs and shake off excess water before chopping up their heads off their body. Be careful not to cut into their bodies.
