Kerala Style Prawn's Fry

The simplest Prawn's curry I have come across. And the yummiest. One of my friend had tried this from a blog called kothiyavunnu where there are many other authentic recipes.

Ingredients :
Prawn's : 1/2 kg (Peeled and cleaned)
Coconut Oil : 2 tbsp
Curry Leaves : 20
Rice Flour :  1 tbsp

To marinate :
Shallots : 4 to 5 (Or use a small onion instead)
Garlic : 1 inch
Garlic : 2 -4 cloves
Cumin Seeds : 1 tsp
Dried Red Chilly : 4 to 6 or Red Chilly Powder : 1 tbsp
Turmeric Powder ; 1/4 tsp
Black Pepper Corn : 1/2 tsp
Lemon Juice : 1 tbsp
Curry Leaves : 4 to 5
Salt according to Taste

Procedure :
1. Marinate the prawns after grinding all the ingredients given under to marinate.
2. Keep it aside for 1/2 an hour.
3. Take a pan and heat 1 tbsp oil and add curry leaves. Once the curry leaves starts giving out their fragrance add the marinated prawns and cook for 4 to 5 minutes.
4. You can add rice flour so that the masala of the marinade sticks well to the prawns.Cook till the prawns turn golden brown. Sprinkle the remaining 1 tbsp coconut oil on top.


Notes : 1. Increase or decrease the spices according to your tolerance level.
             2. Take care not to scorch the masala.
            3. Use coconut oil for  the authentic taste.
