Mummy-ji’s Spicy Prawns

Yields: 2 Servings Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 5 Mins Cook Time: 20 Mins Total Time: 25 Mins

I was never a big fan of any seafood, but when my mother-in-law added prawns to this simple to prepare spicy sauce, I was hooked. Wish just a few ingredients and hardly any time you too can have this delicious meal.

0/5 Instructions
  • Fry prawns in hot oil until the water has almost evaporated and frying begins again.
  • Add garlic and ginger paste, stir a little and cook until the car garlic smell goes.
  • Add the spice (masala) mix and salt to the prawns and fry for a minute to release the aromas.
  • Add chopped chilli and sliced tomato and try this. The water will come out of the tomato and eventually create a thick sauce.
  • Prawns can be eaten at this point, but it's better to add a little water and simmer gently until the sauce thickens again to the desired amount as this will help to soften the prawns.


Great accompanied by Rice or Naan breads
