King prawns (jumbo shrimp) – 25 -30 deshelled and deveined (I used the frozen cooked ones. It is equally tasty)
Fresh ginger-garlic paste – 1tsp
Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Seeds from 2 cardamom pods, crushed
Coconut milk – 1/4 cup
Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
Cilantro – 2 tbsp chopped
Salt – To taste
1. Clean and rinse the prawns under cold running water, drain and pat dry.
2. Mix the ginger-garlic paste, chilli powder, turmeric powder, crushed cardamom seeds and salt in a bowl. Marinate the prawns with this marinade.
3. Heat oil in a pan. Add the marinated prawns and stir-fry for a few minutes at medium heat.
4. Stir in the coconut milk and saute for a few minutes until the prawns are cooked through. This will take only a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper powder. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
