Prawn Curry

I made this a while back but I love curries and this is an easy one, I made it for my father in law when he was here and he liked it.

  • fresh or frozen prawn/shrimp (i call them prawns!)
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 small tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup frozen coconut
  • fish fry masala in Indian store to taste, about a tablespoon
  • curry leaves
  • green chilis
  • ginger/garlic paste
  • pinch of chili powder

  1. heat canola oil, add onion, green chili and curry leaves, then add chili powder, and cook for a few minutes until the raw smell goes away
  2. add the chopped tomatoes, salt and fish fry masala and simmer for 15 minutes, until you get a nice gravy
  3. then add the shrimp/prawns, cover and simmer for another 5-10 minutes
  4. near the end add coconut 
Its done, I love easy recipes, this is great with rice and veggies, oh and dosa is also great.
This is also a great recipe when you don't have many ingredients on hand, I always keep frozen shrimp in.
