Spicy Prawn Stir – Fry

Prawn Stir-fry


King prawns (jumbo shrimp) – 25 -30 deshelled and deveined (I used the frozen cooked ones. It is equally tasty)

Fresh ginger-garlic paste – 1tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp

Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp

Seeds from 2 cardamom pods, crushed

Coconut milk – 1/4 cup

Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp

Cilantro – 2 tbsp chopped

Salt – To taste



1.  Clean and rinse the prawns under cold running water, drain and pat dry.

2.  Mix the ginger-garlic paste, chilli powder, turmeric powder, crushed cardamom seeds and salt in a bowl.  Marinate the prawns with this marinade.


3.  Heat oil in a pan.  Add the marinated prawns and stir-fry for a few minutes at medium heat.




4.  Stir in the coconut milk and saute for a few minutes until the prawns are cooked through. This will take only a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper powder. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
