Chemmeen Ularthiyathu



Chemmeen Ularthiyathu
This recipe is for seafood lovers. It is a no fuss quick recipe for prawns. The recipe will definitely sound simple but there is no compromise to taste. It is spicy and little tart and the flavors are distinctive.The souring agent is kudampuli/gambooge which also imparts a unique flavor to the dish,but if it is not available you can substitute it by adding a teaspoon of vinegar   It is a perfect side dish for rice.

Ingredients

Prawns- 1 lb
Chopped coconut piece- 1/2 cup
Kudampuli/gambooge- 3-4 pieces
Pearl onions chopped- 3/4 cup
Ginger sliced- 1 inch thick
Green chilly-2
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder-  3/4 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/3 tsp
Fenugreek powder- a pinch
Coriander powder- 1 1/3 tsp
Mustard seeds- a few
Curry leaves - a few
Coconut oil- 3 tsp
Salt to taste

Cook the cleaned prawns along with coconut pieces, kudampuli, salt and turmeric. Add very little water and cook for two to three minutes. Reduce the flame and allow all the water to evaporate.
Heat coconut oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When it splutters add curry leaves, ginger, green chilly and sliced pearl onions. Saute till golden brown, reduce flame and add all the spice powders and saute till the raw flavor disappears. Add in the cooked prawns and stir fry for one minute. Serve with rice or pathiri.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
