Ingredients

How to Make Green Lentil and King Prawn Curry

  • Clean and cook the king prawns
  • Finely chop the green chillies, tomatoes and onions and store separately.
  • Wash the green lentils thoroughly and boil with turmeric in water rigorously for 10 mins followed by simmering on low-fire for 40 mins and it is done. Remove scum or froth, at intervals. (Alternatively you could pressure cook the lentils, which could be faster, though I haven’t tried it. Be careful that you do not over-cook and mash it up)
  • Heat oil in a non-stick pan, add the curry leaves and sauté for 30 seconds till it curls and gets fried.
  • Add the chopped onions and sauté till it is translucent, now add the chopped chillies and tomatoes, ginger-garlic paste and cook till oil separates from the mixture.
  • Add garam masala, chilli and coriander powder, salt and sauté for about 3-4 minutes till the raw taste disappears.
  • Add the cooked lentils and prawns and cook for not more than 10 minutes till all the masala and ingredients blend.
  • Serve hot with Rice or Naan.
