Sheetal Kamat

I just love prawns, any recipy.. But this one ma's(mother-in-law) style is most faviourite one.. even better than fried one :) I just love it.

Prawn's Masala
400 gm Prawns
2 onions
2 tomatoes
1/2 spoon ginger paste
1/2 spoon garlic paste
1 spoon red chilli powder
1 spoon turmeric powder
Grated coconut for garnishing
Salt to taste

  • Heat little oil in the pan
  • Fry the prawns in the oil for a minute of so and keep aside
  • In the same oil add finely chopped onion
  • Once onion is translucent, add garlic paste, ginger paste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder
  • After a while add finely chopped tomato and cook for 2-3 minutes
  • Add a cup of water and cook with covering pan by a lid
  • Keep aside for cooling
  • In a mixie grind to get the uniform paste
  • In a pan add this grinded gravy, a cup of water, fried prawns and cook till gravy gets desired thickness
  • Add grated coconut and salt and cook for a minute

Actually ma doesnot grind the gravy in a mixie instead she lets cook the tomato till it completly dissolves, but i prefer it to grind that way even onions give the gravy a nice taste

  2. Sorry for the delay in reply..
    You should get them in medhipatanam just infront of the raitu bajar.. the stuff is available around 9-10am types fresh :) Fresh on BHills Road 12 use to keep fresh fishes, chicken etc as well. But they stopped long time ago.. not sure if the service has started again.
