How to Make Prawns Curry with Sorrel

  • Cook prawns with 1 tsp of red chilli powder, salt and 2 pinches of haldi with minimum amount of water till they are soft. Keep this aside.
  • Cook sorrel leaves separately with 1 tsp of red chilli powder, green chillies, salt and remaining haldi with very little water, till the leaves are tender.
  • Mash this with a wooden ladle or a masher to a fine paste, keep it aside.
  • Heat oil, add mustard seeds, red chilli pieces. When the seeds splutter add chopped garlic and onion pieces, fry till they become soft and light pink.
  • Now add cooked prawns and sorrel paste.
  • Mix thoroughly and cover with a lid, let it cook for 2-3 mins, so that the prawns are nicely coated with sorrel paste.
  • Sprinkle coriander leaves (optional).
  • Check salt and remove from the fire.
