Kolmino patio is a Parsi/Iranian preparation. Kolmino patio is basically a sweet and sour prawn curry.I came across this dish from my dear friend 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 as it is I am a great seafood lover. 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 sweet level since we love spicy curry.
