Andhra Prawn Fry

We have been told by doctors that prawns are very high in cholesterol.We avoid eating prawns and they are quite costly too but very tasty.My daughters love prawns and when ever we go to restaurants we order for loose prawns.At my mothers place i used to eat a lot but after getting married i hardly cooked prawns.In last ten years i cooked prawns 10-11 times.


Prawns 500gm/1/2kg
Cinnamon 1''pc
Cloves 1
Onions cut into length wise 1
Green chillies slited 2
Curry leaves few
Ginger garlic paste 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Chilly powder 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder 1/4 tbsp
Garam masala powder 1/4tsp
Salt to taste
Oil 3 tbsp


Wash prawns thoroughly and de-vein the prawns.

Boil prawns with little salt for 3-4 minutes.Drain water and keep the prawns aside.

Heat oil in a kadai,add cinnamon,cloves,curry leaves,onions and green chillies.Saute until onions change colour.

Now add ginger garlic paste and saute till the curry changes into brown colour.Now add prawns, salt, turmeric powder and coriander powder.

Saute for a while maybe for 5-6 minutes until the prawns are dry.

Lastly add red chilly powder and garam masala powder.

Serve hot as side dish or as party snacks.
