Durga Puja Celebrations: Prawn Curry with Yogurt

Durga Puja, our biggest and most favorite festival is just around the corner. This gorgeous festival starts with Mahalaya, which ushers the beginning of Durga Puja, and also announces the final stages of the puja. A lot of enthusiasm and joy surrounds this festival of four days. We wait for the entire year for Durga Puja and enjoy to the hilt. Durga Puja is not only about new clothes, fun, decorations, exchanging of wishes and love, but also a whole lot about delicious food. Whether it is eating out or cooking at home, everyone wants to try something new.

So here's a delicious and easy to prepare recipe which you can try during Durga Puja...enjoy!!



You will need: Tiger prawns(6/7), Yogurt 1-2 cups, 6 Green chillies(slit), Whole spices(garam masala not grounded) 1 tsp, Chilli powder 1 tsp, Sugar 1/2 cup, White cooking oil(according to requirement), Salt to taste.

Procedure: Heat oil in a shallow pan. Fry the prawns golden brown and keep aside. Now fry the whole spice separately for few seconds. Now add the prawns, beaten yogurt, green chillies, chilli powder and salt and stir for sometime. Keep it on flame till the oil gets separated. Serve hot with steamed rice, fried rice, paratha or roti!
