It`s a tasty dish but very poor listing of ingredients. Mustard seeds and curry leaves are not even mentioned in the list of ingredients.

Thanks for this recipe! But there`s one doubt. Should one not marinate the prawns before frying?

This recipe came out very well and it goes well with rice and curry.
I did not add water as some water comes out of the shrimp.
