  3. Take a pan and heat oil in it, add the cumin seeds, bay leafs, dry red chilli, sugar and let them crackle.
  4. Now add the onion paste and fry for sometime till it's light brown in colour, then add the tomato paste, ginger paste, cumin powder, coriander powder, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt.
  5. Fry it for 2-3 minutes, then add the potol and potato. Keep stirring until the masala starts releasing oil.
  6. When the oil starts to release add some water to it. Once the water starts boiling, add the prawns. When the gravy thickens add ghee and garam masala.
  7. Serve it hot with steamed rice.

My Tip:

Do not fry or boil the prawns as this will make the prawns chewy.
