Prawn masala is a pretty standard dish eaten throughout the Indian subcontinents partially due to the lack of meat eaters in India. Like most prawn recipes, the cooking difficulty doesn’t lie in the actual cooking itself, it’s with the marinade. When attempting to cook this recipe, pay extra attention to the marinade; really experiment with it to taste the way you want.  Once you have the marinade down you’ll quickly have a platter of delicious prawns.
