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 3 to 4 minutes(stir in between to avoid sticking)

Heat oil in the same kadaii; Season it with fennel seeds and curry leaves.

Now add finely chopped onions and saute till the colour changes.

Next add red chilli powder and garam masala .

Give it a mix and add cooked prawn ; mix 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.

    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.
