Am Hi Pauljoseph,

Am curious is it possible to do this recipe with something like large prawns if rock lobster is not available? Might be a little hard to find in my region.
pauljoseph May 4, 2011
Witzbold definitely you can try with large or small prawns

I do quite enjoy Indian food in general and have a large fascination with using combinations of spices to achieve excellent aroma and flavor, which seems to be a big part of Indian cuisine. A usual Indian dish that I enjoy having here in my town is Saag Chicken. I see a lot more interesting recipes of yours and do look forward to trying them out in the future. Please keep up the great job with sharing your cooking secrets with us all here!
