Prawn Curry

Been on a trip of eating some really authentic prawn curry & the Koshy's prawn curry & rice is fantastic. So been looking around for a good recipe to try my hand at. Found this somewhere on the net seems really easy & sounds like it will have a yummy outcome. Any tips on making prawn curry are very welcome:)

Prawns 1/2 kg
Ginger paste 1tbsp
Garlic paste 3/4 tbsp
Onions 2
Green Chilli slit 4
Garam masala 1tsp
Tomato puree 1/2 cup
Chilli powder 1tsp
Coriander powder 1tbsp
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Peppercorns crushed 5
Limejuice 1tbsp
Oil 1/4 cup
Curry leaves
1 sprig
Salt - As required

Method of Preparation

Clean the prawns, keep aside. Heat oil in apan, add chopped onions and sauté till onions turn brown. Add ginger paste, garlic paste, chopped green chillies, and cook for a while. Add coriander powder, chilli powder and turmeric powder. Sauté for a while. Add tomato puree and keep cooking till the mixture becomes semi-dry. Then add the prawns, crushed peppercorns, garam masala, curry leaves and lemon juice. Cover and cook till prawns are done. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.
