  • 450gm. king sized prawn or shrimp
  • 1 medium onion, skinned and finely chopped
  • 1\3 cup oil
  • 1tsp. fresh ginger paste
  • 1 tbsp. garlic paste
  • 1\2 level tsp. turmeric

Cooking Directions

Shell the prawns, remove the head and remove the vein. Keep aside.

Heat oil in a heavy based saucepan. Add the onions, ginger and garlic.

Stirring frequently, fry for 10-12 minutes until the onions are a light golden color.

Add chili powder, turmeric, salt, garam masala and coriander powder.( Add 3-4 tablespoons of water along with the spices, to prevent the spices from burning.)

Stirring frequently, fry the mixture for another minute. Then add the tomatoes.

Still stirring frequently, fry the onion mixture for about 8-10 minutes until the tomatoes are reduced to a pulp.

Add a little water, if necessary, to prevent the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Keep frying until the oil begins to separate.

Add the prawns and continue stirring and frying for 5 minutes or until the prawns are tender.

Add little water if necessary.

Garnish with coriander leaves and green chili.

Serve with Nan, Roti .
