My family loves spicy food regardless of seafood, chicken or meat, it must be hot. Tried this prawn masala, it turns out great, best served with naan, paratha or rice.


400g prawn devein but leave tail intact
2 onions chopped
1 teaspoon ginger paste
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 tablespoon chili powder (adjust to your taste)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
5 green chili chopped
30g fresh coriander leaves
3 tomatoes chopped
salt to taste
3 tablespoons oil


1. Heat oil, fry onion until light brown, add ginger and garlic paste, cook until fragrant.

2. Add tomatoes and salt, cook until soft then add all the spices including coriander leaves. Sprinkle water if it is too dry.

3. Pour in the prawn, stir until the color changes for a few minutes.

4. Remove from heat, serve hot.
