Prawn Cucumber Curry Recipe Ingredients

1 cup fresh prawns properly cleaned and washed
3-4 big size cucumber cut into small pieces.
Coriander leaves finely chopped
2-3 green chilis finely chopped
Pinch of Panch Phoron
1 tsp Jeera powder
1 tsp dhania powder
1 tsp ginger paste
1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste

How to prepare

Marinate the prawns with salt and turmeric powder. Heat oil in a pan and fry them in that pan. Do not deep fry the prawns otherwise they will become tender. Just keep them in the oil for 5 min and stire properly in medium heat.


Take out the prawns and keep them aside.

Now add some more oil in the pan and add the Panch Phoron & bay leave in it. Stir it for 2-3 mins & add the cucumber pieces. Add salt, turmeric powder and the green chilies and cover the pan. 

After few minutes,we can see lot of water came out from the cucumber pieces. Increase the flame a bit.Now we need to add the jeera powder, dhania powder and ginger paste. Stir properly and cover it. After 3-4 min again check the condition and add the half fried prawns. If the cucumbers are properly cooked then no need to cover the pan further.

Now add chopped coriander powders. Increase the heat and stir the mixture propely so that everything can mix properly,till the time the water will get dried up. It will be a very little gravy curry.

Take it in a bowl and serve hot with plain rice. Eat Healthy!!!!
