prawns fry(sungata ukkeri)

this recipe is my daughter's favorite. she loves to have this. it is very simple,easy to make, and tasty.


Prawns- 500 gm

Onions(big)chopped - 2 nos

Tomato chopped - 1 no

Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp

Red chilly powder - 1 1/2 tbsp

Green chillies -2 nos

Curry leaves - 1 stem

Salt - As required


Remove shell and tail of prawns, wash and strain. Cook prawns along with some salt in very little water, till the colour of the prawns changes into reddish pink.Do not overcook the prawns, since overcooking will make the prawns hard.

Heat 2- 3 tbsp of oil in a pan. Saute chopped onions till light brown. Add turmeric powder and stir well. Add chilly powder and stir on a low flame for less than a minute. Add chopped tomatoes and saute on medium flame, till it becomes thick gravy like and separates from oil. Add curry leaves and prawns along with the remaining water of the cooked prawns, if any.
If no water is left, add 1 - 2 tbsp of water. Stir for a few minutes, till the gravy becomes thick.Add the green chillies and salt, if necessary.serve hot with rice or phulkas......
this can be made even very simple method.
wash and clean the prawns.boil the prawns along with salt and turmeric. keep it in a simmer fire.the prawns will leave water ,so it will cook itself. no need to add extra water. when the prawns become pink in colour add the red chilly powder, chopped onions, chopped green chillies, curry leaves,and cook till the water evaporates completely.sprinkle 1tbsp of coconut oil and stire for 2-3 minutes and serve hot.
