Ginger Prawn Fry/Roast

This is a spicy ginger flavored prawn fry/roast prepared in South Indian style.


Prawns - 500 grams 
Onion - 1½ (Finely chopped)
Ginger - 1½ tbsp (Finely chopped)
Green chilli - 2 (Finely chopped)
Red chilli powder- 1½ tsp(Adjust according to your spice level)
corriander powder - ¾ tsp
Turmeric powder - ½ tsp
Fennel powder - ½ tsp
Garam masala powder - ½ tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Corriander leaves - for garnishing


Peel the skin, devein and wash the prawns; Keep aside. 

Take a kadai, add the cleaned prawns, chopped ginger, salt, turmeric powder and chopped green chillies . Close the lid and cook in a medium flame by adding ¼ cup water only for 4- 5 minutes(stir in between to avoid sticking)

Heat oil in a separate kadai; Temper it with curry leaves and add finely chopped onions. 

Saute till the colour changes and now add separately cooked prawn and all the spice powders; cook well till the masala coats over the prawns.(Don't cook for a long time;it has a tendency to become rubbery in texture)

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.

  5. Amazing looking sauteed prawns. It only wants me to stop being a vegetarian by choice and enjoy these delicacies. I wish , I could :)
    Also the masala has coated the prawns perfectly & since you are using only little oil to saute, i think it is super good healthy, at the same time rich recipe.
