Lobster (or was it Cray Fish?!)

It's been a while since I wrote about Sunday Cooking, mainly because I'm hardly home for Sunday lunch! My aunt was making lobster a few Sundays back, so the foodie in me canceled the lunch plan with friends just to savour a lobster - my first!

Apart from how complicated the lobsters looked, there was nothing very complicated recipe. There was hardly any peeling and chopping involved, but cleaning the lobster thoroughly is a must and the smell can get to you sometimes. 


Here's the receipe my aunt followed-
  1. Clean the lobsters
  2. Marinate them with haldi (turmeric power) and salt
  3. In a pan heat oil and add onions, tomatoes, haldi power and red chilli powder. Stir until fried
  4. Add lobsters and cover for 2-3 minutes
  5. Grate coconut in the grinder and add it to the pan
  6. Add water and salt in the pan to make the gravy
  7. Cover the pan and let it cook for about 5-10 minutes, stir occasionally
  8. Take the lid off and serve the lobster curry with rice and salad!
  9. It's the perfect sunday lunch :)
My opinion about the lobster was that it is more chewy than prwans and has a stronger smell, but the meat seemed more flavoured :D
