I assume, it has been ages since I shared a prawn recipe with you given the fact that Prawn happens to be one of my favourites. So why not resume my love saga with prawn with the current recipe, a simple yet popular one. It tells the story of a yummy prawn curry, a bit on the spicier end, living happily with slice potatoes and onion. Go for it, if you are in love with prawn too.
Ingredients to serve 3-4 :
- Prawn (medium size) – 250 gm.

- Coriander powder – ½ teaspoon
- Red chilli powder – ½ teaspoon

Remove the shell, head and tail of the prawns, devein them and wash thoroughly. Smear salt and ¼ teaspoon of turmeric powder on prawns and keep it aside.
Heat oil in a pan or kadai over medium flame. Add the prawns and fry till they start changing colour. Do not overcook the prawns otherwise they will turn chewy and hard. Keep the fried prawns aside.
