    This is a popular King Prawn Curry, fairly hot in taste and served in a curry sauce hot in intensity, garnished with
    fresh coriander.

    Serves 6:
    Preparation time: 30 minutes


    Ingredients:
  • King Prawns - 12
  • Oil - 6 tablespoon
  • Onions, finely chopped - 4 large
  • Mixed Pepper, finely sliced - 2
  • Tomato Puree - 4 tablespoon
  • Turmeric Powder - 1 tablespoon
  • Chillie Powder  - 3 tablespoon (or as per taste.)
  • Cumin Powder - 2 tablespoon
  • Coriander Powder - 1 tablespoon
  • Garam Masala - 2 tablespoon
  • Ginger Paste - 2 tablespoon
  • Garlic Paste - 2 tablespoon
  • Salt - 2 teaspoon (or as per taste.)
  • Water - 1 cup
  • Coriander, freshly chopped - a small bunch.


    Method:
  • Boil all the King Prawns in salted water for 5 minutes. Drain water and keep aside. Chop them into two pieces.

  • Heat oil in a pan. Add onions, mixed pepper and allow to sizzle. Add tomato puree, mix well and allow to cook for 2
    minutes.

  • Add all the spices viz. turmeric, chillie, cumin, coriander, garam masala and mix well. Let it fry for 1 minute before
    adding the garlic and ginger paste. Add salt and water. Cover the lid and let it cook for 2 minutes.

  • Add the King Prawns and stir well. With the lid on, let it fry for 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated on medium heat.
    Remove lid and stir occasionally to avoid burning.

  • Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot!


    Variation:
    Use the  Basic Curry Sauce and 2 tablespoon of special spice mixture to make the same dish instead of all the powder
    spices listed above.


    Tips:
    If you prefer a mild dish, simply reduce the amount of chillie from 3 tablespoon to 1 tablespoon!
