Prawn sukka is a dish from Mangalore that is located on the west coast of south India. The spicy and tangy orange (sometimes red) prawn roast is made with fresh coconut and dry red chillies. Bring this appetizing coastal seafood from Mangalore to your buffet table.
Immersing in shelled prawns that come in thick roasted dried out coconut and curry leaves will leave your guests asking for more. Even the masala’s colour is a feast for the eyes, and the taste is a treat in itself. You can rest assured that your guests are going to enjoy this lip-smacking prawn sukka to the last bite.
If you love mussels and clams, you are sure to love having Marvai Gassi at your wedding. The dish is basically cooked with caramelized onions, coconut, lime, zest, tamarind and lemon. One great thing about clams is that they are nutrient-dense and contain vitamins and omega-three fatty acids.
It is usually served with pundi/mini rice dumplings slid and soaked in the gravy; it makes the combination a truly coastal dish. The dish is sure to give you a mild ocean flavour of mussels that have a faintly sweet undertone, and the tangy, spicy coconut gravy brings out the authentic coastal flavour in the dish.
Salmon Puli Munchi
Puli means tamarind or sour, and Munchi means chilli in Mangalore’s native language, so essentially it becomes a hot and sour fish curry. Try it in restaurants that are catering to Indian food in Vancouver to truly preserve the native flavour.
It is a fish that is blended with spicy-tangy gravy. The dish is perfect for cold days, the reason being it is extra spicy. If you are looking to serve something hot, tangy and flavorful at your wedding, then this is an ideal choice.

Jenji Gassi is another Manglorean dish that is basically a crab curry. The thing about crab meat is that it stands out for having a little sweet taste; it can be served as a main course, appetizer, and even as a part of salads. The typical Manglorean style of the preparation adds some level of heat and spice to intrinsically match the delectable meat making a dish that is sure to have people struggling to stop at just a few pieces.
Prawn Goan Curry
Prawn Goan Curry is a savoury tropical side to indulge in and enjoy at a beach. It can be served along with rice for a wholesome dish at your wedding. The curry is made using roasted spices, fresh coconut and coconut milk; it is usually tangy with a tinge of sweetness to it. The juicy, succulent prawn immersed in a creamy coconut gravy turns out to be one of the most scrumptious Indian tropical dishes.
Salmon Masala is another must-have dish in our catering Indian food menu. Salmon Masala is cooked with tomato and black mustard in an onion-based curry. This masala dish offers just the right blend of refreshing salmon and warming aromatic masala gravy.
