King Prawn Korma

     This recipe is from the Best Ever Indian Cookbook. We have shared the recipe for extremely easy and delicious spicy prawn stir-fry from this book before. A few of my friends tried it and loved it too. This recipe for prawn korma is a bit different from the usual korma recipe but it is really easy to prepare and is tasty too. Hope that you all will enjoy it.

4. Now add the prawns and continue to stir-fry until the prawns have heated through or until they are cooked(if they are raw) and the sauce is quite thick. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with chapatis.

 

 

Tips:

 

1. Paprika gives a good rich color to the curry without aadding extra heat.

 

2. Do not let the prawns overcook in the sauce or they will toughen.
