Prawn Masala Curry / Shrimp Masala

Prawn Masala 

Prawn  Masala  Curry  is an easy & mouthwatering seafood dish. We love the freshness, natural flavor & succulence of the prawns. The best part of the amazing prawns is that it is very tasty when cooked with any of the ingredients.
This is a simple & easy to make recipe, which gives the taste of prawns and spices. In this recipe, the prawns are cooked in a tomato based spicy curry. 
This spicy & rich masala laden curry goes very well with a combination of chapathi, roti &  rice.
