Soymilk Assam Prawns



A delicous yet easy to prepare mouth-watering sourish curry dish which will definitely tantalise your tastebuds.  Instead of coconut milk, I used sugarless soymilk  and it tasted just as good. This dish will make you refill your bowls or plates with more rice and leave the table, satisfied and contented ........ burp!





An alternative to rice is to serve this dish with cooked rice vermicelli.....yummy!
