Narkol Sorshe Chingri / Prawns with Mustard Seed Paste and Coconut in Microwave Oven..!

Prawns.....Coconut ....Mustard seeds....!! Aren't these words bringing water in your mouth? Awwwww ! My heart breaths music with these words... hahahaha... ! Joking apart, today I am going to share a beautiful ,easy ,simple prawn recipe which is delectably good and can be prepared with in no time almost. This time I made this in the microwave oven. In absence you may prepare it in pressure cooker also.

Here is the recipe:


  • Prawns:250 gm.
  • Mustard Seed Paste:4 tbsp.
  • Yoghurt:2 tbsp.
  • Mustard Oil:4-5 tbsp.
  • Coconut Milk/Coconut Cream/Scrapped Coconut(either one): 1/2 Cup
  • Salt: As per taste
  • Turmeric Powder:1/2 tsp.
  • Green Chilli:2 (slit from middle)


  • Clean and devein the prawns and mix it with all the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and marinate it  for just 10-15 minutes.
  • On full power heat it covered (I used a borosil microwave cookware with lid) on the microwave oven just for 8-10 minutes.
  • Take it out from the microwave and check whether the prawns are done or not. If needed heat it for another 2-3 minutes only but not more than that. Excess heating may turn the prawns very hard.
  • Serve hot with steaming hot rice.
  • It tastes  heavenly....!
