Serves: 8 

  • 600g medium prawns, deveined
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric powder
  • 2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon fennel powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 shallots
  • oil for cooking
  • 2 stalks curry leaves

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Leaving the shells on, slit the back of the prawns and devein. Rinse and put in a bowl with turmeric, coriander, fennel, cumin, chilli powder, salt and pepper. Mix and leave to marinate for a few minutes.
  2. In mortar and pestle (or blender) pound the garlic and shallots until fine.
  3. Heat a little oil in pan until hot. Add the curry leaves and stir-fry for about 2 minutes. Add the pounded garlic and shallots and stir-fry until fragrant. Put in the prawns, stir and cook until just done. Taste for seasoning and serve hot.


Instead of measuring the individual spices, you may also use pre-packaged fish curry powder that's available.
