How To Make Prawn 65 / Prawn 65


There is no answer for certain cravings !! This happened with me few days back only, after preparing full course meal on Sunday, I felt like eating Spicy prawn stir fry. Finally the greedy me inside went ahead to pamper myself. For next few minutes I was handling the most delicate seafood  by cleaning the entrails of the prawns and marinating them ready for the evening. This may have been the effect of my recent visit to Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu a few weeks back which I thoroughly enjoyed and had up close view and taste of the freshly caught seafood.

So once there was evening, completed my prawns 65, sat with a glass of cold drink in the balcony with my family and watched the sun set far away .sounds clichéd but anyway thought using it :)

Ingredients:
300 gms Prawn
1 Onion, ground to paste
1 Tomato, ground to paste
1 tsp Ginger, finely chopped
2 tsp Garlic, finely chopped + 1/2 tsp for garnishing
1 tsp Kashmiri red chilly
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 Garam Masala
2-3 Green chillies, chopped
1/4 tsp Pepper powder
1 Lemon juice
A fistful of fresh curry leaves
Salt to taste
Oil as required

Method:
Clean the prawns, de-vain them and remove excess water. Marinate the prawns with 5-6 lemon drops, turmeric powder, salt and keep aside for 15 minutes. 

Deep fry the prawns in hot oil for few seconds, frying for long time will make the delicate prawns hard to eat. In the same pan add curry leaves and saute for few seconds.Add onion paste and fry on low heat. When it turns pink, add turmeric powder, red chilly, ginger, garlic and green chilli. When it starts leaving oil add tomato paste and fry till the raw smell disappears. 


Add the fried prawns, garam masala, pepper powder and mix them gently with the masala for 2 minutes. Remove form heat and add finely chopped garlic at this stage (optional) if you really love garlic flavour like me ;-) . Squeeze some lemon juice on it and serve hot.
