Prawns / Shrimp Curry in Coconut milk

Prawns are my kids favorite among sea food.They love prawns not only to look at the tiny curled up ones but also love as there are no fish bones in it.This is a very old recipe from my draft which I almost forgot to post.This is a very simple and delicious curry that goes well with rice or even rotis too.Do try this out at home and enjoy !!


Ingredients
Prawns/shrimp large ones 30
onion 1large thinly sliced
shallots 3-4 vertical slit
tomato 1 medium sliced
ginger-garlic paste 1 1/2 tsp
green chillies 2-3 vertical slit
chilly powder 1tsp
turmeric powder 1/3tsp
pepper powder 1/2 tsp (optional)
coconut milk thick 1/2 cup
coconut milk thin 1 cup
curry leaves
oil(preferably coconut oil) 2tsp
salt


Method
-Wash the prawns after rubbing with lemon juice and salt.(I usually leave it for 10 minutes rubbed)and then wash under running water.Drain in a colander and keep aside.
-Heat oil in a pan and add the sliced onions,shallots,curry leaves.Saute till translucent.
-Add the ginger- garlic paste and add the green chillies.Saute till raw smell disappears.
-Add the tomatoes and cook till slightly mushy.
-Add the spices and mix well on low flame.Add thin coconut milk.
-Add the prawns and cook covered for 10 minutes.
-Uncover the lid,mix again and cook uncovered for another 5 mins.
-Add the thick coconut milk on low flame and remove from flame when one or two bubbles appear at the surface.

Servings~ 3-4 adults
