F
irst non-vegetarian dish in my blog :-). Prawn Masala made by my sister and BIL together, photo taken by them, I'm just blogging the recipe :)

They both make some wonderful prawn masala, it just taste yummy. I'll not hold you all anymore, over to prawn masala now:

Ingredients:

To Marinate
Prawn - 1kg
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 2 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice - 2 tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp

For Curry
Oil - 6-7 tbsp
Onion - 5 large chopped
Tomato - 3 large chopped
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 2 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tps
Coriander powder - 2 tsp
Cinnamon Powder - 1/2 tsp
Cloves Powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Salt - to taste
Water - 1 cup
Coriander chopped -  5 tbsp to garnish

Method:

1. Clean prawns remove the shell and marinate with all the ingredients listed under 'To Marinate' and keep aside for 1/2 hour to 1 hour or more if you have time.

2. Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onion and saute it until light pink.  Add curry leaves, ginger-garlic paste and fry until golden brown.

3. Add all the powder masalas, tomato cook till tomato gets mashed and oil start leaving the edges in slow flame with stirring in intervals.




4. Add the marinated prawns, mix well and cook for 5-7  mins with lid on on medium to slow flame.


5. Add the water, salt to taste  mix everything and cook with lid on until gravy becomes very thick and oil comes on top.





6. Serve with paratha/rice or pulav.




Try hot or warm with steamed rice


Note

  • For more spicy version add another 1 tsp of red chili powder while cooking curry.
  • For tangy version add 1 cup beaten curd once gravy becomes thick and simmer for 5 mins in slow flame.
  • You can also soak 1 tbsp tamarind in 1/4 cup water and extract thick pulp and add to curry once it starts to become thick and simmer for 5-8 mins in slow flame.

  25. Hi,

    This is a typical maharashtrian recipe...just a few required spices not too many...and BANG you get a lovely prawns masala...my mom makes it the same way...i am planning to make it soon so reading thru ur recipe refreshed me moms recipe...now I dont have to call her for the same...thank you... Tip: Try adding a 1-2 kokam just a minute before switching off heat, to this recipe, it adds a different magic :)

  27. I forgot to mention that u will need to reduce few the tomatoes if ur adding kokam and balance flavours, orelse it will be more tangy.
