Dad loves prawns and since he is with me whenever he goes to the fish market, it is somewhat inevitable that he will get a big lot of prawns.. I love them too and it gives me great happiness to prepare different types of recipes as he also is a foodie like me. He gets very excited to get me list of ingredients as well so well I am more than glad to cook him up different styles..
Now I have done the malai curry and the kalias and the daab chingri, and mostly I keeping running around the same bits of ingredients but today I searched and got a nice recipe to which I gave my own twist… So here goes my version…
Ingredients ( which I used )

- Ginger – 3 inch fat ginger

- Clean and devein the prawns and keep them aside.
- Grind Ginger, garlic, chillies, turmeric, chilli powder, salt and cinnamon to a paste and mix it with the prawns and keep this mixture in the fridge for 15 minutes.
- Take a wok and add the oil and add the prawns and lightly fry them in the wok. Take the fried prawns out and let it rest.
- Add the onions to the same wok and once the onions are browned add the tomatoes. Add a little chilli powder and fry it till the tomato blends into a smooth sauce.
