Chettinad Prawn Masala / Chettinad Eral Masala

Whenever I love to try some thing new with non veg, I preferably look for chettinad recipes which is famous for non veg recipes. I would say no south indian non veg restaurant exist without chettinad recipes. I like the blend of different spices though have never tasted. It is flavorful and gives a sense of homely food. This is one such recipe.. 

Recipe Source: Solai's True chettinad kitchen


Prawns 450g
Pearl Onions 10
Garlic Cloves 5
Cinnamon sticks
Cloves 3

For Marination:

Ginger Garlic Paste 1/2 tsp
Chilli Powder 1 tsp
Juice from Half Lemon


Clean the prawns. In a bowl, combine the prawns and all the other ingredients for marination. Keep it aside for half an hour.


Chop Pearl Onions and Garlic. Chop Tomato into very fine pieces.

Heat oil in a Pan. Add cloves, cinnamon sticks. When they start changing their color, add the chopped onions and garlic. Fry till the onions turn translucent.

Now add the chopped tomatoes and a pinch of salt. Fry till its skin peels and the oil separates.

Now add the marinated prawns. Mix well and cook covered till 8-10 minutes and until done. Need not add water as prawns oozes out water while cooking and that is sufficient enough for its cooking.

Serves: 1-2
Serve with steamed rice and non veg curry or Idli/Dosa.
