Simple and easy and a recipe that can have so many variations.
- A couple of prawns.
- One finely chopped onion.
- A green chilly.
- Three finely chopped ripe tomatoes.
- Fresh Coriander.
- A teaspoon of ginger garlic paste.
- Cumin Powder, a teaspoon.
- Turmeric, quarter teaspoon.
- Red Chilly powder, a teaspoon.
- A little butter.
Rub the turmeric, chilly powder and cumin on the prawns and keep aside.
Saute the onions and green chilly in oil till they have mellowed down and become soft. Add in the ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell is gone. Add in the tomatoes along with salt. Cook till the oil separates. Move the masala to a side and place the prawns directly on the hot surface of the pan. Put the butter on top of the prawns. When the prawns color starts changing, flip them over.
About a minute or two later mix everything and add the chopped coriander.
Cook covered on low heat for about 5-6 minutes or till the prawns are done.
