If I could, I would eat prawns all day, everyday. Whether in a complex spicy curry or batter dipped and fried like the Japanese version, they are just fabulous. From the tiniest shrimp to the largest king Prawns, I love them all and am always looking for different ways to cook them.
This is a lovely recipe sans coconut that my Mum used to make.

- Garam Masala- 1/4 tsp

Wash and clean the prawns. You could completely remove the shell or leave the tail part of the shell on, as I have done here.
Mix salt, half of the turmeric powder and half the chilli powder with the prawns, and leave for 15 minutes.
Chop the onions and coriander leaves.
In a hot pan, add oil.
Fry onions till pink. Add ginger, garlic paste. Fry for 1-2 minutes.
Add the tomatoes, add some salt and a pinch of sugar. Let the tomato soften.
Add in the turmeric and chilli powders.
Add the prawns. mix well. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
Add the coriander powder and garam masala. Mix well.
Add in 1/2 a cup of hot water. Let mix well. Simmer for 1 minute. Add in the chopped coriander and serve hot.
