Prawns Curry


Prawns 500gms
Onions 2 (big)
Green chillies 2
Ginger Garlic paste 1 tbsp
Cinammon 2
Cloves 4
Red chilly powder 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder 1/4tsp
Coriender powder 1/2 tbsp
Whole pepper 6-8
Curry leaves few
Oil 3 tbsp
Salt as per taste
  1. Wash prawns and remove shell, head, tail and de-vein it.
  2. Make a paste of onion,half of clove,half of cinammon and pepper.Keep aside.
  3. Heat oil,add the other half clove and cinammon,then add curry leaves
  4. Saute for a while and add onions and green chilly.Saute till onions are brown in colour.
  5. Add the onion paste,ginger garlic paste and fry till oil comes out.
  6. Then add prawns,turmeric powder,red chilly powder and salt.
  7. Stir carefully so that masala coats the prawns.
  8. Cook till the gravy is little thick.If you want it dry cook for some more time.

Usually prawns doesn't take much time to cook and prawns should not be over cooked.If over cooked they become hard.Goes well with hot rice and rotis.
