Prawn Thokku

I learnt making this recipe from my SIL, when i had been to her house for last vacation.She added just chicken 65 masala to the prawns and it tasted very good. I made slight variation and added extra spices too.

Fresh Prawns can be added directly .But if we go for the frozen one, it is better to marinate the prawn with little turmeric powder, Chilli powder and little salt.Add very little salt if ur marinating coz the chicken 65 masala might also contain salt.


Prawns - 1/2 lb

Onion - 1 medium (finely Chopped)

Tomato - medium

Ginger Garlic Paste - 3 tsp

Curry Leaves -1 sprig

Chilli Powder - 1 tsp

Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp

Coriander Powder - 1 tsp

cumin Powder - 1/2 Tsp

Chicken 65 masala - 1 tsp ( i used Sakthi brand)

Salt to taste

1.Heat oil in a kadai and add the onions and saute it well.

2.Add ginger garlic paste and when the raw smell goes off add tomatoes and saute until the tomatoes get mashed.

3.Then add Chilli powder,Turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and chicken 65 masala.Mix well.

4.Add the prawns along with 1 cup of water,curry leaves and allow it to cook for 10 min.

If u want more gravy u can add little more water.

Some Chicken masalas have salt in it already so adjust the salt accordingly.
