Chettinad Prawn masala fry

This recipe has been adopted from my MIL. Trust me, this is really a finger-licking dish. This is must try if want you to win your man's heart..:)

You Need:

Prawns - 250 gms
Onion - 3 nos
Tomato - 3 nos
Chilli powder - As per spice level
Green chilli's - 2 nos ( Optional, I personally like spice from green chilli's)
Curry leaves - one handful
Salt - To taste
Turmeric powder - pinch
Coriander leaves - For garnish

Chop the onions and tomatoes. Clean and wash the prawns. Dont forget to take the vein at the back of the prawn.

Heat the oil in the kadai, add onions and saute till it becomes translucent. Add curry leaves and sliced green chillis and stir for few more min. Dont avoid using curry leaves. It really enriches the flavor. Then add tomatoes. Add salt now which will make the tomatoes to cook fast. Add chilli powder and little water for the mixture to cook and to avoid burning.

Cook till the mixture is cooked completely and tomatoes are mashed well. Check the spice and salt level in this stage and add if needed.

Once the mixture is cooked well and add the prawns. Dont add water as sufficient water will ooze out from the prawns itself.

It is well known fact, that it takes very few minutes for the prawns to get cooked. Stir the mixture well so that the prawns are well coated with masala.

Garnish with coriander leaves.

Spicy and finger licking prawn masala fry is ready to be served. You can serve this as side dish or as an appetizer.
