Hubby dear has gone for a family reunion at his native place. He has gone visiting his sisters and all of them have gathered at one place for a typical family gathering. I can only imagine the reunion song they might sing together. Maybe like ‘Yaadon Ki Baaraat’ title song? Well they might sing a telugu one that I don’t get right now. Visualize each of them singing a line running in slow motion, calling in between ‘Anna’, ‘Akka’… Well Athamma is all so restless being left along, while all her children have gathered with their whole family. I too would’ve loved being there, only with the kids, it becomes too hectic. They have plans for a film outing and elaborate cooking. The sisters ensure they stuff their brother with all his favorite dishes. I can expect a long list of stories when he is back.
Coming back to the goal I am talking about, I happened upon a beautiful blog called 80-Breakfasts, where the author ChichaJo writes about beautiful breakfasts. She says in real life we might have reached 80 and more breakfast items. That prompted me to check how many I have blogged and was depressed to see only 48, now I have got on myself to reach 80, if not 100. Let me see how it goes! Of course, I can’t expect to get my so beautifully appealing as ChichaJo, all her pictures are mouth watering and out of the world!
Coming to these prawns, these are not made by me, all I did was just click the picture. Amma made these when we visited them for dinner. One mouth and hubby dear was praising its taste. So I had to click it and take note of the recipe. I have not cooked prawns till now. But noting the recipe is all important. And I thought I will share it with you.
Prawns – 500 gms
Onion – 1 medium
Tomatoe – 1 medium
Ginger Garlic paste – 1/2 tsp
Chili powder – 1 tsp

Turmeric powder a pinch
Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp

Clean and wash the prawns. Chop Onion and Tomatoes finely.
Heat a pan with oil. Saute Cumin seeds, then add the onions. Add the clove and cinnamom. Then add the ginger garlic paste. Fry well. Then add the tomatoes. Simmer till its mashed well. Add the salt, chili powder, coriander powder and turmeric. Fry till the oil comes out.
Then add the prawns and fry till its well cooked and dry. Add a cup of water and bring to boil. Then simmer and fry it becomes dry. The whole cooking takes about 20 – 30 mins.

The small size prawns suit these best. The prawns have to be really dry.
