Step 1

Prawns should be cooked well with chilly powder, salt and curcuma in water and wait until the water evoporate completely.

Step 2

:- I cannot specify the amount of water here, but usually it should be cooked for 20 mins or more. Water should not be drained, but it should evaporate completely in low heat.

Step 3

Cut ginger into tiny pieces.

Step 4

Heat little bit of coconut oil in a pan and fry chopped ginger until slight brown.

Step 5

Step 6

Add sliced green chillies to it and fry it. Keep this mix aside.

Step 7

Add coconut oil in the same pan.

Step 8

Fry the shrimps in it.

Step 9

:- It shouldn`t be fried too long. The consistency of the shrimp should be like a rubber.

Step 10

Once frying is done, add the pepper powder to it and stir well.

Step 11

:- Taste it and if the salt is low add adequate salt.

Step 12

Add the fried mixture and mix thoroughly.

Step 13

Transfer this to a dry bowl.

Step 14

Add half or one glass of water to the pan and boil well and allow it to cool down.
