Where I stay at present is slightly better when it comes to the price of prawns. Its sea based, so we get a wide variety of prawns in varied sizes. Moreover, my men love them, so I do often. This particular preparation is done with shredded coconut and selective spices using very little water. Let us do this very easy dry prawn curry.
Prawn[medium sized] : 500gm
Shredded Coconut : 1small cup
Cumin Powder : 1tsp
Red Chilli Powder : 1tsp
Turmeric Powder : 1tsp
Coriander Powder : 1/2tsp
Cumin Seed : 3pinches

Salt : As Required
Clean, devein and wash the prawns thoroughly. Rub with salt and 1/2 tsp of turmeric. Keep aside.
Heat oil in a wok. Lightly fry the prawns in batches and keep aside.
Temper oil with cumin seeds. Add the shredded coconut and saute for 1 minute.
Add the ginger paste, salt, turmeric and stir for 1-2 minutes. Now add the red chilli powder, coriander powder and cumin powder, fold in well and stir for 1/2 a minute.
Add the fried prawns, fold in well and keep stirring at high heat for 1 minute. Add half small cup water. Let cook covered at medium heat till the water dries up.
