Kozhi Kurumulakittathu-Nadan style
Chemmeen Mulakuvaratti-Nadan style
It is one of the simplest prawn recipes that I make quite often at home...I thought it was quite a very common recipe in Kerala...I was feeling too silly to write out the recipe for this until I found a few queries on this item...so I thought I'll share my simpleton chemmeen...It is one prawn dish that I love to have with a hot steaming 'kanji'(rice gruel) and pappadam or with chappathi or with kerala porotta.
Here's how I make it....
Red chilli powder-3/4 tbsp(depends on how hot u can bear!!)
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Garlic/Garlic powder-1 tsp
Tamarind paste-1/2 tsp
Curry leaves-1 sprig
Heat Oil(I take oil slightly more than what is usually required for a shallow fry).When the oil is hot, add curry leaves. Once it has spluttered, add all the spice powders. Heat on a low flame for a minute. Now add the cooked prawns( cooked in a little salt water)into the masala. Add the tamarind paste and salt as required. Mix well. Let it cook for a few minutes until the masala coats it well.Serve hot with kanji/chappati.
