Prawns and Fish Pollichathu

One thing which makes this dish unique in Edinburgh is the manner in which it is served. We still use banana leaf parcel to maintain both tradition and taste. Prawn Pollichathu is a fabled south Indian dish in which prawns and curry are assorted to provide best tang and health benefits which comprises of following

In general each prawn provides us

·         25 grams of protein

·         Vitamin B6, B12, Niacin etc.

·         Sodium

·         Omega-3, which lowers blood pressure, thus reducing probability of heart attack, in simple words it keeps our heart healthy.

Moreover when dish is prepared utter importance is given to hygiene, as this is our prime factor to consider and for this prawn and fish are washed properly. Then they are soaked in spices to add extra traditional flavor.

Further the addition of Nilgiri species like curry leaves, turmeric, and special chili powder during cooking adds a unique south Indian taste. At last coconut milk is poured and mixed which is further followed by heating of wrapped content in banana leaf parcel for quirky taste.
