Prawn Masala (Less Spicy)

Prawn Masala is a very tempting dish, I would like to share my version of Prawn Masala which is thick and so delicious, not very spicy dish. Let us check how I made this;


1 kg of large prawns (de-shelled and de-veined)
3 potatoes (diced)
1 large onion (sliced)
1 large tomato (diced)
1 tbsp kerisik (coconut paste)
1 tsp of turmeric powder
1 tbsp of ginger garlic paste
2 tbsp of fish curry masala
1 tsp of dried chilli paste
1 sprig of curry leaves
1 tsp of cumin seeds
1 tsp of fennel seed
1 cup of water
Salt to taste

Marinate prawn with turmeric powder and keep aside for later use.

In a pan, heat oil add cumin, fennel, curry leaves, ginger garlic paste and stir for a minute then add sliced onion, potato and tomato and  stir well, at this point add a pinch of salt.

Now add water and let the potato half cooked then add marinated prawns fry for a minute. Then add dried chilli paste, fish curry masala and kerisik, let the masala cook well and raw smell goes off. 

Let the gravy thicken and adjust seasoning, now our Prawn Masala is ready to be served.

Do try and let me know how it turned out!
