Kolumbi che Bhujne - Prawns Stir Fry

A simple stir fry that tastes delicious especially with chapati.

Kolumbi che BhujNe
Prawns curry
1 lb shrimp/prawns, peeled & deveined
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp malvani masala
1/2 tsp salt

Grind to paste
1" ginger
2 garlic cloves
1 or 2 green chilies (adjust per your preference)

1 tbsp oil
2 onions, chopped finely
2 garlic cloves, chopped finely

3-4 kokums, rinsed
1/4 cup cilantro/coriander leaves, chopped
2 tbsp fresh coconut

1. Marinate cleaned shrimp/prawns with turmeric powder, salt, malvani masala and ground ginger-garlic-chili paste. Set aside for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.

2. Heat oil in a saucepan or kadai. Add chopped onions & garlic. Saute till the onion gets soft. Do not let it burn.

3. Now add the marinated shrimp/prawns and 2 tbsp water. Adjust salt. Add kokums.

4. Saute till the shrimp/prawns are cooked and masala clings to them.

5. Stir in cilantro and coconut. Saute for 2 more minutes. Switch off the gas.

6. Serve along with chapatis or rice bhakri.

Note -
1. If you do not have malvani masala, use chili powder & a generous pinch of garam masala.

2. Chopped onions approximately measure about 1 cup. As onion sizes differ from place to place, I thought chopped onions is a better measure than just mentioning 2 onions!:-D
