Prawn masala recipe, How to make prawn masala

Prawn masala is a spicy recipe where prawn is cooked in onion tomato gravy. It is simple to make and involves only handful ingredients in its preparation. This is one of my favorite recipe from the time I learnt cooking non veg as it does not involve any grinding and is very easy to make as well. This is also one such recipe which I craved a lot during my pregnancy and I made it often at home. I used small prawns in this recipe which makes it even more delicious but you can try it with big ones too. So lets get to the recipe quickly!
