  • Slit a few green chillis (depending on how spicy you want your dish to be) and add them to the oil. Add the blanched prawns and continue to stir for a few minutes till the prawns are covered in the spices.
  • Add the coconut milk and salt as per taste and let it cook for some time till the prawns are fully cooked.
