Prawns Masala

When I came US for the first time, I was surprised by the big selection of the prawns available in the supermarket which are hard to find in the local fish market of India. Personally I feel that indian cooking has more diversity in recipes based on prawns compared to the western world. Here I am presenting a recipe using prawns. I think it came out well.


Prawns - 250 g
Ginger garic paste - 2 tbsp
Green chilli - 2
Shallots - 1/4 cup
Tomato - 1,cut in lengthwise
Tomato - 1 ,cut into small pieces
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1tsp
Coriander powder -1 tsp
Kokum - a small piece
Coconut milk - 2 tbsp
Oil - 2 tbsp

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and allow to splutter. Then saute ginger- garlic paste,green chilli,shallots and curry leaves. Add tomato cut in lengthwise and cook till oil separates. Add turmeric powder,coriander powder and red chilli powder and saute. Add prawns and kokum and allow the prawns to be coated with the masala. Add some water and allow to cook the prawns. When it is cooked,add coconut milk and tomato cut into small pieces. Mix well and serve with rice.

Kribha,Kokum is a type of tangy dry fruit which is available in indian grocery increases the sourness and flavour of the fish curry almost like tamarind.
