  • 3 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil

Step 1 : Prepare ingredients

  • Wash, Clean and remove veins of prawns. I didn’t remove the heads or shells of the prawns for this recipe in order to make it looks like a restaurant style recipe. However you can remove the heads from the prawns as you like.
  • Cut green chilies and onions into bite size pieces. Keep aside.
    Prepare ginger garlic paste by grinding few garlic cloves and a piece of ginger together. Keep aside.

Step 2 : Cooking

  • In a pan, heat cooking oil.
    When oil is hot add prawns and stir-fry. When the colour of the prawns turns in to red/orange, add ginger garlic paste to the pan. Mix well.
  • When the ginger garlic paste turns into brown add the sauce to the mix.
    Then add chili powder, sugar and salt.
    Mix well.
  • Add warm water to the mix until you get the desired consistency.
    Add onion and green chili to the mix.
    Simmer in low flame for another 1-2 minutes until all combine well.
    Check the taste and adjust salt if necessary.
    A delicious prawn dish in tomato sauce is ready to serve with fried rice.
