Prawn Curry Recipe:

Prawns or in bengali the "Chingri" is the most tempting word for all the food lovers...I have never seen a person who doesn't love prawns unless that person is allergic to it....well,in my house,it's a most favorite item and my husband and even my three years old daughter are just addicted to it....she cant eat spicy food and that's why I always add very little chilli powder,very small quantity of all the spices and always try to make it very tasty yet...

This prawn curry preparation ,I have learned from my maa.and sharing her recipe only....Here i want to mention one thing that Maa cooks her super tasty and super delicious recipe with mustard oil most of the time and so I do the same...


  1. Medium to large size prawns:500gm
  2. Potatoes:2-3 medium(cut in medium blocks)
  3. Onion :2(make a paste)
  4. Ginger paste:2 tsp
  5. Garlic paste:1/4 to 1/2 tsp(this one I added but maa doesnt like to add garlic paste for any preparation other than chicken or mutton).
  6. Tomato:1 (chopped)
  7. Turmeric Powder
  8. chilli powder:a pinch(you can add it as much as you want)
