Sun-dried salt prawn coonis are typically enjoyed as a snack on their own and don’t require a recipe. However, you could use them as an ingredient in some Sri Lankan dishes for added flavor and texture. Here are a few ideas:
- Sun-dried salt prawn coonis sambol: In this recipe, coonis are mixed with a spicy and tangy coconut sambol to create a flavorful side dish. To make the sambol, you’ll need grated coconut, dried chili flakes, garlic, lime juice, salt, and sugar. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl, then stir in the coonis. Serve the sambol as a side dish with rice and curry.
- Sun-dried salt prawn coonis omelet: In this recipe, coonis are added to a simple omelet for extra flavor and texture. To make the omelet, beat eggs in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Fry the coonis in a pan until they are crispy, then remove from the pan and set aside. Pour the eggs into the pan and cook until set, then sprinkle the coonis on top of the omelet and fold it over. Serve the omelet hot.
- Sun-dried salt prawn coonis fried rice: In this recipe, coonis are added to a flavorful fried rice for added crunch and saltiness. To make the fried rice, you’ll need cooked rice, vegetables (such as carrots, peas, and onions), garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Fry the vegetables, garlic, and ginger in a pan, then add the cooked rice and coonis and stir-fry until heated through. Season with soy sauce and sesame oil to taste.
