Kolmi no Patio

You will need:
– 5-6 curry leaves (preferably dried leaves)
– 2 onions finely chopped
– 3 tsp cumin powder
– 3 garlic cloves cut fine (or use garlic paste)
– 1 tsp turmeric
– 1 tsp chilli pwd
– 3-4 tomatoes blanched and pureed or (canned puree)
– 30-40 yummy prawns 🙂
– 1 tbsp vinegar
– 2 tsp sugar

To make all this delicious, you will have to:

1. Fry curry leaves
2. Just as they start to change colour add onions, fry until nicely browned
3. Add the powders (cumin turmeric, chilli) and the garlic, fry for 2 minutes
4. Add tomato puree. Cook nicely for 5-10 mins on low heat (you may need to add a little water to keep it from getting burnt.. but the more this masala cooks the better it tastes)
5. Reduce heat and add prawns, (you can add water to help them cook)
6. Mix the sugar and vinegar in a small bowl
7. After prawns are cooked, add the vinegar sugar mixture
8. Cook for a couple of more minutes.
9. Voila! Kolmi no Patio!

Have fun,

p.s.: Gourmet style would recommend blending the whole masala before adding the prawns.. but if you use tomato puree then its not necessary
