Prawn Karahi

Sea food being a special favorite of my family it’s no wonder that we all love to have Prawn Karahi in my family. Down below I am sharing a very easy but contemporary and spicy recipe of Prawn Karahi with minimal ingredients but packing a punch of flavor. Read on!



Prawns: 1 KG

Tomatoes: 8 Chopped

Green Chilies: 12 Diced and blended till a smooth paste forms

Ginger: 3 Inch piece chopped in thin strips



Black Pepper Corns (about a dozen)

Ground Red Chili



Take a wok and heat the oil in it. Toss in the Black Pepper Corns and stir till they are crisp. Add the tomato paste and cook till the paste forms a thick gravy. Toss in half of the green chilies and ginger along with the prawns. Cook for approximately 5 to 8 minutes depending on the size of the prawn. Add salt and ground red chilies according to your taste and garnish with the remaining ginger and green chilies.
