Prawns Roast

A very quick and easy prawns roast that requires only a few ingredients and is very yummy too. Just grind all the ingredients, marinate the prawns  and leave them to get roasted. The aroma of the curry leaves in the coconut oil is just indescribable. 
400 grams prawns, cleaned and deviened
1 onion, roughly chopped
1 tomato, roughly chopped
2-3 cloves garlic
a handful of curry leaves
2 teaspoons red chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon black pepper powder
4 tablespoon coconut oil


  • Grind the onion, tomato, garlic, chili powder  turmeric powder, pepper powder, salt, 1 tablespoon coconut oil and half of the curry leaves in to a fine paste. Marinate the prawns with this paste for 1 hour.
  • Heat the coconut oil in a pan. Add the remaining curry leaves and the marinated prawns.
  • Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Then open and dry roast the prawns on a medium flame stirring frequently until dark brown in colour. Serve hot.

*You can add 1/2 teaspoon of fennel powder and a pinch of garam masala too for an added flavour.

  2. So good. Its a brilliant idea to grind the ingredients and than marinate and next to do the varuval style.
