I havent spoken more about sharmi clicks here after announcing that I am starting a P365 blog. I should admit it is hectic and on the other side all the more enjoyable than I thought. Having the camera sticking to me all the time like a baby kangaroo sometimes a burden too with the bulky camera bag hanging on one side and holding mittu on the other side...eyes wandering for framing a pic :) Today marks the 100th day.....long way more to go!
Coming to prawns curry - We dont get prawns often so this time I made sure to click and post it. I realised I can cook nonveg if someone cleans and gives me :) This time I made the prawns curry getting the instructions from Amma.
1.Clean prawns(by removing the center nerve part), wash it and set aside. Grind coconut with fennel with little water to a paste, Keep aside.
2.Heat oil in a kadai - add the items under 'to temper' then add onions and garlic fry until it turns slighly brown.Then add ginger garlic paste, fry for a minute.
3.Then add prawns and tomato puree. Saute until prawns starts shrinking say 5mins. Then add red chilli and coriander powder. Saute until raw smell of tomatoes leave and the masalas blend well.
4.Prawn lets out water so check that and then add 1/4 water and keep closed. Once the prawns turn soft, add required salt.
5.Now add the coconut paste and allow it to boil and get cooked until oil seperates and the curry becomes semi dry. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and switch it off.
Serve with hot steamed rice or chapathi
- The curry consistency is purely our preference - if you want more gravy kind switch it off accordingly.
- Clean prawns and wash it thoroughly before you cook
- This curry goes well with rotis or even rice.
