  • I had already marinated the prawns with turmeric & chilli powder, before I got hold of the recipe. One can easily cook without turmeric though.
  • Make a paste of garlic, coriander leaves & green chilli in vinegar.
  • Heat mustard oil & add dry red chilli & sliced onion.
  • As the colour turns translucent, add the paste & fry till the raw smell goes off.
  • Add the prawns, mix well & cook till the prawns are fully cooked.
  • You can add more chilly powder, salt and other seasonings at this stage, as per taste.
  • Add a bit of sugar to balance the tangy vinegar.
  • As oil starts to separate, add a dollop of ghee, mix well.
  • Garnish with cherry tomatoes & serve.
