Although the Koli community is an integral part of Mumbai (the people are the original inhabitants of the city), not much is recognised or known about their cuisine or culture. The seafood-centric cuisine boasts of exceptionally unique dishes flavoured with homemade Koli masalas. Check out home chef Geeta's recipe for making Koli-style Prawns Sukka at home!

1. Wash and de-shell the prawns, keeping the head and tail intact. Carefully devein the prawns and wash thoroughly.
