Royyala Vepudu / Shrimp / Prawn Fry

I love seafood, especially when cooked by ammama. I made prawn/shrimp fry for sunday's dinner and it turned out very good. I like the taste of curry leaves in any non-veg dishes, and so I use curry leaves generously when making these dishes.

300 gms shrimp/prawn
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp red chilly pwd(reduce or increase according to taste)
1&1/2 tsp garam masala pwd
1 tbsp ginger- garlic paste
1tsp cumin pwd
1tsp corriander pwd
6-8 curry leaves
2 large onions sliced
4 green chillies slit(reduce oe increase acc to taste )
1tsp lemon juice
2 tbsps chopped cilantro
Salt to taste

  • Marinate shrimp with half of the salt, red chilly pwd, turmeric, ginger garlic paste for 10-15 mins. Cook covered with 1/8 cup water till the shrimp are cooked.
  • Remove from heat when cooked and keep aside.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil and when hot, add curry leaves and saute for a minute. Add sliced onion and slit green chillies and saute till the oinon is translucent.
  • Add the remaining ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw smell disappears.
  • Add  remaining salt, tumeric, red chilly pwd, corriander pwd, cumin pwd and garam masala and fry for 2 mins.
  • Add 1/2 cup water along with the cooked shrimp and cook till all the water evaporates.
  • Add cilantro and fry for another min. Switch off, add lemon juice.
  • Serve with roti, white rice. I served it with white rice, tomato rasam.
  • Enjoy!!!
