Prawns Masala Curry

  • Prawn masala curry is a simple yet delicious recipe . This is quite easy and tasty. The nice thing is that the prawns are not marinated so ,only as long as it takes to make the gravy, so the recipe doesn’t take much time at all. The trick is to cook the prawns quickly or they will get rubbery and chewy. If you don’t have prawns or shrimp, you can make this with skinless, boneless chicken pieces and it is just as delicious.

Making prawns is very easy but to clean and devein the prawns is a very tedious process.

Cleaning prawns by deveining is a very important step as eating prawns without deveining causes severe health issues.

Make sure to devein them prior to making any prawn recipe.

Prawns are quick in cooking and they take not more than 15 minutes to get cooked and they taste delicious in any form of cooking such as prawns fry or prawns curry.
