Kadai Prawn with potato

Today, the whole day i am trying post this recipe, but blogger wouldn't let me.And i couldn't visit any of other blogs or neither could i post comments.Did any of you go thru this?.Anyways finally at 10.30 pm , i could finally log into my account.So before blogger hangs up on me again let me go straight to the recipe....

My Cousin sis used rave about this dish alot.Whenever i talked about prawn, this is the only dish she kept on saying.So this sunday, i decided make this dish and called her for the recipe.Amazingly she was also making this one..:)..well i guess wise women think alike or may be we are just women thinking all the time about food n' food only..:))


Shrimp - 10-12 (i used cooked frozen ones)
Potato - 2 medium ones (cut into small cubes)
Onion - 1 (chopped fine)
Perunjeeragam/Fennel - 1 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 2tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2tsp
Red chilli powder - 2tsp
Dania powder - 1tsp
Curry leaves - as needed
Salt - as needed
Oil - 2tsp


In a pan, heat oil and fry fennel and curry leaves.Fry onions till golden brown.Once onions are fried well add gg paste and fry.Add turmeric,chilli and dania powders.Fry well till raw smell goes.Add potato,salt and mix well. Cover and cook till potatoes are almost cooked.Now add shrimps and cook till almost all gravy is evaporated.(There won't be much of gravy since we didn't add any water).Since i used cooked shrimp, i added it alomost at the end.If you are using fresh shrimp,you might have to add it bit earlier.Serve hot with rice/roti.
