Chingudi Besar dia Bhaja/ Prawn Fry with mustard paste

Prawn or chingudi(in oriya) is one of my favourite non veg...
Chingudi Besar dia Bhaja/ Prawn Fry with mustard paste is a recipe from my Mom's kitchen...and here it goes:-


3-4 prawns(big size)
We can use small prawns with shell (chhota chingudi) for this recipe..
1 small onion-chopped
3 tsp mustard paste
(prepare by grinding  2 tsp mustard seeds, 5-6 flakes garlic )
2 tsp red chilli powder
2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
Mustard Oil to fry


Clean the prawns by removing the shells.
Marinate  the prawns with 1 tsp turmeric powder, salt and oil. Keep aside for 10 mins.
Heat oil in a pan or kadai.
Add the chopped onions and fry for 2 mins.
Now add the prawns with the mustard paste to the kadai.
Also add the turmeric powder,  red chilli powder and salt along with 1/2 cup of water.
