During and on Christmas day goans normally cook meat dishes. You would very rarely find prawns curry cooked on Christmas day. Seafood & rice is part of the staple diet so to make prawns curry there is no special reason/occasion required.

I wonder how this prawns curry tastes, cause me being a goan I can tell that this is not the authentic way as there are many ingredients missing.
