Everyone loves prawns, I have yet to meet someone who does not like prawns, as for me I love them in any form and size, so when I purchase prawns from the fish market I usually store them in smaller individual portions. This makes it easier to remove a packet each, and make the dish of my choice (off course, I make my portions keeping the various dishes that I would like to make in mind. As my fish curry does not need too many prawns which a prawn pulao needs prawns in a much larger quantity)
I had my sister in laws kids for lunch and I wanted to make something different which I had not done earlier and which would be quite chatpata i.e. hot and sour.
So here is my prawn dish…
1 cup medium sized prawns
2 medium sized onions blanched and pureed
2 small tomatoes finely chopped
1tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp Kashmiri chili powder for colour
1 tsp red chili powder
½ tsp garam masala.
½ tsp haldi or turmeric powder
Finely chopped coriander for garnish
Salt to taste.
Take oil in a pan
Stir fry onions till light brown, add ginger garlic paste and stir
Add the pureed tomatoes and stir till oil separates
Add all the masala’s and stir
Add the prawns, add a little water and let it cook till the prawns are cooked, which takes about 3 mins.
Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves
Serve with hot rotis or steaming hot rice
