Curried Coconut-Seafood Soup (Seafood Rassa)
Hemant Oberoi uses seafood from India's West Coast for this bouillabaisse-like rassa. A cross between a soup and a curry, the rassa is spiked with coconut milk and laden with mussels and shrimp. Steamed basmati rice or warm naan--or both--are key for sopping up the rich, thick broth.
