Prawn or fish caldine – quick method

The Caldine is a yellow non spicy Goan curry, its usually made with fish or prawns as well as vegetables. Making traditional caldine is a bit of a pain. It requires coconut juice and that process can be tedious and messy. I have a quick method that satisfies the taste buds and meets the craving. 

Prawns – 250 grams
Pumpkin – half a kilo
Coconuts – 1/2 grated
Onion – one
Coriander seeds – 1 tablespoon
Cumin seeds – 1/2 teaspoon
Ginger – 1/4 inch
Garlic – six cloves
Turmeric – 3/4 teaspoon
Cloves – 3
Pepper corns – 10
Green chillies – 3

Wash and clean the prawns and de-vein them thoroughly. Boil all the prawn heads and shell of the prawns for five to ten minutes, strain and reserve the stock. Wash the prawns in water and then add half teaspoon vinegar and set aside

Grind all the above ingredients to a smooth and very fine paste. Make sure this paste is really smooth, and I mean it. Add water as required while grinding.
