Prawns(Shrimp) Dry Roast / Prawns Ullarthiyathu

 Prawns or Shrimp dry roast is a very delightful and finger licking recipe.The recipe goes well with chapatis or rice.I just tried this out as per my mom's recipe.Its easy to prepare and perfect for an unexpected guests at home.They will remember the taste forever  :-))
Check out my other Prawn recipes --  Prawns Biriyani , Prawns manchurian, Prawns dry masala , Prawns- Mango Curry ,Fried Prawns masala , Prawn wrapped crispy

Prawns - 450gms or 50 count large ones
Onion 3 medium sized, sliced
shallots /pearl onion -5 sliced
green chillies- 3 chopped
ginger garlic paste 2 tsp
chilly powder 1 tsp
coriander powder 1 tsp
garam masala 1tsp
fennel seeds 1/2 tsp (optional,I always love the smell of this)
kudampuli (fish tamarind) or kokum 3 pieces
curry leaves
oil  5 tsp

  • Wash and clean the prawns using lemon juice and salt.(lemon takes away the bad odour, I usually apply this and keep aside for 15minutes).Wash it thoroughly under running water and keep aside.
  • Chop all the veggies as listed.
  • If you are using the fresh prawns,then cook the prawns in salt,turmeric powder,half of chilli powder and drain the water.keep aside.(I omitted this step as i used cooked shrimp packet)
  • Heat oil in  a pan and add the fennel seeds.(if using)
  • Saute  shallots,then add sliced onions till deep brown colour,add the ginger-garlic paste.
  • Add the green chillies, curry leaves and little salt and kodumpuli(fish tamarind)
  • Add all the spices on low flame.Give a quick toss.
  • Add the shrimp to it.
  • Cook covered for 10 minutes with a half cup water.
  • Dry up the masala mix and Serve hot!!

* You can replace the fish tamarind with the other tamarind .

first time i ever seen dried shrimps being cooked this way...spicy and curreid.
