    6. When they splutter, add finely chopped onion and salt and saute until it turns golden brown and reduces in volume.
    7. Then, add turmeric powder and finely chopped tomato and saute until it turns mushy.
    8. Add ginger-garlic paste and saute until oil separates.
    9. Then, add red chilli powder and coriander powder and saute for a minute.
    10. Add water and boil it for 2-3 minutes.
    11. Add coarsely ground black pepper powder. Stir it well.
    12. Add shrimps/prawns and cook until well done.
    13. Remove it from flame.
    14. Close the lid and allow the flavours to mix well.
    15. The longer you wait, the better is the taste.
    16. Serve it with rice or rotis.
