Raw prawns (fresh/frozen) are deveined and cooked with a cup of water, salt (1/2 tsp) and hing in a stock pot. Switch off the flame once the prawns change colour (are orange-pink in colour).
1. In a pan, add oil (1/2 tsp) and red chillies, toast them for a minute.
2. In a blender, add the red chillies, coconut, salt (1/4 tsp) and tamarind and blend with little water to form a smooth paste.
Add the ground paste in a pan, add the cooked prawn water ( its full of prawn flavour) and bring to a boil. This will take about 5 minutes on a medium flame. Once the coconut paste is boiling, add the cooked prawns and coconut oil. Let it boil for just couple of minutes now (do not let the curry boil more, as the prawn will turn rubbery and smaller in size as well). The prawn curry is ready. You can have it with steamed rice/ dosa / appam / couscous/ rice noodles.
