Kolmino Patio

 Kolmino patio is a Parsi/Iranian  preparation. Kolmino patio is basically a sweet and sour prawn curry.I came across this dish from  Nutans blog.We were given a task to prepare this dish in the Fb food group on bloggers day by Nutan .I just love trying new recipes  and I was happy to see this recipe. Nutan  has explained the recipe step wise beautifully. And believe me this dish turned to be a super hit at my place. Only thing I changed in the recipe is I reduced the sweetness since we love spicy curry.
