Vinegar: 3tbsp

Ajwain: 1/2tsp (optional)

Coriander leaves: To garnish

Oil: 1tbsp

Salt to taste

Let’s get cooking

1. Clean, wash and devein the prawns. Pat dry.

2. Marinate the prawns with the chilli powder, kashmiri chilli powder, cumin powder and vinegar for about half an hour.

3. Heat the oil in a pan and add the curry leaves. Fry until crisp.

4. Add the onion and fry until brown.

5. Mix in the prawns and fry for a few minutes.

6. Add a little water (around half a glass) cover and cook until the prawns are done.

7. Add the salt and ajwain. Fry the mixture until almost dry.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 25 minutes (excluding marination time)
