Method
  1. Marinate the prawns with chilly powder, turmeric powder, pepper powder and salt – longer time the better (minimum 30 minutes).
  2. Smash the green chillies finely with salt and the ginger garlic paste. Ideally use a pestle-mortar again.
  3. heat oil in a pan and fry onions and curry leaves until onions are reddish brown –
