Prawns Masala

It is time to show off some bravado this week. I’ve never cooked fish before, I’ll be experimenting with prawns (simplest of all) today. I’ll be making Prawns Masala.


  • Prawns (obvious)
  • Ginger Garlic paste
  • 1 table spoon of Rice flour (do not know how it adds on to the taste, I did not want to meddle with the suggested recipe, so keeping it)
  • 5 Green Chillies (being sane this time)
  • 3 Onions
  • Salt (as per taste)
  • 1 tablespoon of Coriander powder
  • 1/2 table spoon of turmeric powder
  • curds
  • 2 table spoons of Chili powder (again trying to be sane)


  1. First of all clean the prawns.
  2. Chop onions and Green Chillies.
  3. Take ginger paste as per taste and quantity of prawns.
  4. Add some curds to it, as per taste.
  5. Salt again as per taste.
  6. Sprinkle some rice flour on the paste.
  7. Add Chilli powder, Coriander powder and turmeric powder to the paste and mix well.
  8. Then marinate the prawns in the paste for 1/2 an hour.
  9. Then heat some oil in the pan and fry the chopped onions and Green Chillies well. (Curry leaves can be added while frying)
  10. Now put the paste in pan and add little water.
  11. Heat it for 10 mins with regular sauteing.

And wallah, the Prawns Masala is ready :).
Further It could be garnished with coriander leaves and tomatoes. I din’t have any of those, no garnishing in my case.

An after thought : Garnishing would have made it look more aesthetic.
I do not like a lot of ginger, I found the ginger garlic a bit too strong for my taste. However this is my first time and it was not at all bad.
woohoo !! Mission Accomplished
