How to Make Prawn Malaikari

  • Heat oil in a kadai. Add cloves, cinnamon, cardamom and bay leaves.
  • After a couple of minutes when you can smell the fried spices, add the prawns. Stir them in medium heat. Do not deep fry.
  • As the prawns curl up and are barely golden brown, add coconut milk.
  • Add the chopped and boiled potatoes. Add sugar and salt.
  • Add garam masala, jeera, ginger and coriander powder.
  • If you want thick gravy, do not add water. Otherwise, add half cup water.
  • After the gravy boils, pick up some pieces of potato and smash them using the back of the spatula. Then mix it back with the curry. This gives a better taste.
  • Before serving, sprinkle the coriander leaves.
