Prawn curry- Andhra style | how to make prawn curry

Prawn curry- Andhra style (royyala kura), is a spicy and reddish curry recipe prepared with indian shrimps. It is very easy to prepare. This prawn curry goes well with rice or roti.

In the curry preparation, we first roast the prawns well, so that raw smell of the prawns will completely vanish. Later we add onions paste and spice powders to make delicious gravy.

I am using home made garam masala powder here. Not using any other store bought masala powders.
