    4. Cover and cook till the water dries up.
    5. The prawns should be curled up and have a pink hue.

    7. Meanwhile heat another pan with oil.
    8. Add the curry leaves followed by onions.
    9. Saute till the onions wilt.
    10. Add the chilli powder and turmeric powder and saute for a minute.
    11. Now add the cooked prawns and mix well.
    12. Lower the heat and let it cook, stirring in between till the prawns turn nearly reddish brown.
    13. Adding an extra tbsp of oil will help it crisp up better.
    14. Serve hot.
