Prawn Masala

My land-lady's daughter in law made prawns the other day, and gave me some for lunch. It was absolutely delicious. I just loved it. So I wrote down the recipe from her. Today I decided to make it. I did exactly what she said. Mine was fine...not as good as hers. But not bad for a first attempt. She said that this does not taste good with big prawns.Ingredients:
Prawns: 200 gms
Onion: 200 gms
Tomatoes: 200 gms
Curry leaves
Coriander leaves
Ginger Garlic paste (better if it is made fresh at home): 1 tsp
Turmeric powder
Coriander powder
Chilli powder
1. Drop some curry leaves in hot oil.
2. Next add the chopped onion and a bit of salt. Fry for a bit and then add the ginger garlic paste. Fry till golden brown.
3. Add the prawn and fry for 2 minutes.
4. Then add the tomatoes and fry.
5. Add the coriander, turmeric and chilli powders and the remaining salt. Fry for a minute.
6. Add water till the prawns are submerged. Not too much water.
7. Simmer and cook till the oil leaves.
8. Add coriander leaves. It should be dry. No gravy at all.

I would like to enter this to the event hosted by Jeenas Kitchen. I just found out about it, and I hope that this does qualify for it.
