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

Ingredients:

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
Salt

Preparation:

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

Method:

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.
