  • Marinate the prawns with turmeric powder, crushed pepper, pepper powder, chilli flakes and salt.
  • Crush the garlic cloves(with skin) and add them to the prawns. Add a few curry leaves and 1Tbsp coconut oil and mix everything well and marinate for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl take 2Tbsp coconut milk. Chop a few curry leaves and add them to the milk. Add 1tsp of coconut oil and mix everything well. Keep this aside.
  • Chop the ginger and slit the green chillies and keep aside.
  • In a pan heat 3Tbsp coconut oil and shallow fry the prawns along with the crushed garlic.
  • Sprinkle the chopped ginger and green chillies over the prawns while frying.
  • Fry the prawns on both sides for not more than 2 minutes. (If you cook for a longer time the prawns will turn rubbery)
  • Drizzle the prepared coconut milk mix over the prawns and roast the prawns until the coconut milk is fully absorbed. (This will take just 2-3 minutes)
  • Serve the delicious venad paal konju with piping hot steamed rice and a curry of your choice.
