Prawn - Drumstick Curry

This recipe is adopted from my MIL. Trust me, you'll never go wrong with this recipe. The prawn and drumstick combination is really mouth watering..:)

You Need:

Prawns - 250 gms
Onions - 1 no
Tomato - 3 nos
Drumstick - 1 no
Brinjal - 2 nos ( I didnt have stock at home)
Coconut - 1/4 of one full coconut
Fennel seeds (sombu) - 1 tbsp
Chilli powder - As per required spice level
Coriander powder - 2 tsp
Tamarind - one small lemon size
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves - For garnishing
Salt - To taste

Take a pressure cooker, add oil. Once heated, add onions and fry well till translucent. Meanwhile , add water to tamarind and leave it for few min. Extract the tangy water from the pulp and keep aside. Then add tomatoes, chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt, tamarind water, brinjal, drumsticks, curry leaves and cook for 3 to 4 whistles.

Meanwhile, grind the coconut and fennel seeds to fine paste by adding little water. Open the cooker and add this coconut mixture and cook open for 5 to 10 min. Check the spice and salt level in this stage. Add more if needed. Add water if you require more gravy.

Switch off the flame once the coconut mixture is blended well with the masala and the curry has acquired the desired consistency.

Garnish with coriander leaves.

Mouth watering prawn curry is ready to be served.
