How to prepare
Saute chopped onion, then garlic ginger paste.
Add prawns and powders with salt.

Then add tomatoes, green chillies, and coconut milk.
Boil till the prawns are cooked.
Remove from fire, garnish with coriander leaves.
Prawns need less cooking time.
Cooking prawns for a long time will make it hard.
If the prawns /shrimps are medium sized, cook them up to 4 or 5 minutes and for larger size, you can add 3 or 4 minutes too.
Don't forget to remove the intestinal vein of prawns before you cook them.
Keep the curry for half an hour before you serve.
So the juices in the shrimps will enter into the curry slowly and it will make the curry little thick and tasty.
Goes well with chappathi, rice & vellappam.
