Wash the shrimp using salt n lime.Boil the prawns with enough water,turmeric powder and salt for 5-7minutes.Drain the water and keep aside.Pour oil in a pan and add the chopped onion.Wait until it is slightly browned.Add the green chilli,tomato and let it get cooked and become mushy.Add the chiili powder,turmeric powder,garam masala powder.Put off the stove.Leave to cool and grind the mixture to a thick paste(without adding water).Now add the paste back to the pan and add in the cooked shrimp.Cook covered for 2-3 minute.Open the lid and garnish with coriander leaves/cilantro.
