Shrimp/Prawn Masala

Shrimp/prawn doesn't make any difference to me. In Chennai we used to buy prawns all the time. I never know anything about shrimp!!!! Till date I couldn't find out the difference between prawn and shrimp. Who cares whether its a shrimp or prawn.. I absolutely love it..


1 Packet peeled and cooked prawn/shrimp
1 onion finely chopped
1 tomato finely chopped
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp fennel seeds
salt to taste
Oil for seasoning


Clean the prawn and marinate with turmeric powder. Leave it aside. Heat oil in the pan and add fennel seeds.. once the aroma comes out add onion. Fry onion till they became translucent. Add Ginger garlic paste. stir for a minute. Add chopped tomatoes and fry till tomatoes become mushy. Now add all the powders and fry till the raw smell evaporates. If this sticks to bottom, U can sprinkle water. Add soy sauce & salt and saute for 2 mts. Add marinated prawn. The prawns are already cooked so it will take about 10 mts to absorbs the gravy. Mix well. It should be dry side dish... Garnish with coriander leaves...

Serve Hot with Chappathi, Biriyani or Sambar!!!



Looks awsome!!! I will add this to my "try recipe list"
