Prawns Gravy

Prawns gravy is a very delicious gravy. The best combination for this gravy is with Roti/Chapathi or Phulka. This is a very easy recipe which can be made without any fuss. Some may have problem cooking non-veg. This will not go wrong even for first timers. I found this recipe in fb and have tried this a few times and it is a hit among my kids.

Prawns are a variety of seafood which gets cooked in just 5 to 7 mins depending on the size of the prawns. Overcooking these will make them rubbery. So just look out for the prawns to become pinkish or take a prawn out and cut it using a spoon to check whether it is cooked.IMG_2059

Hope you all will try and let me know how much you liked it.

METHOD

  • Take all your ingredients ready.

  • Cook till oil oozes out of the mixture.
  • Now add little water according to the gravy consistency and allow it to boil.
  • Time to add the prawns.
  • Just cook them for 5 to 7 mins. Keep checking after 5 mins. Take a prawn and check if it can easily be cut using a spoon.
  • Finally add the chopped coriander leaves and then switch the stove off.
  • Prawns Gravy is ready to be served with roti/pulka or any naan variety.

Note :  Clean the prawns and devein it before starting the other preparations.

Adding an onion in the start is my preference. Can skip if you don’t want. Directly add the ground mixture to the oil instead.

Check the spice level before adding the red chili powder.

Prawns don’t take too long to cook so keep an eye after adding them in the gravy. The time to cook the prawns depends on the size of the prawns also. So be alert.

Can add boiled potatoes to the gravy also. Kids will love them.

I used fresh turmeric so I put them while grinding the paste. If using the turmeric powder add it after the onion gets cooked.

Add water according to the consistency one likes.
