Stir Fried Prawns with Tamarind

Prawns are my favorite. This stir fried prawns will give you both spicy and sour taste. This sour, tangy flavour is characteristic of many Thai dishes and gives you a great taste. Really friends once you cook this, you wont end up in first time.


  • Prawns - 1/4 kg
  • Dry Red Chillies - 7 to 8
  • Onion, small one - 1, chopped finely
  • Garlic - 5 cloves, chopped finely
  • Shallots - 3, sliced
  • Tamarind Juice - 100 ml, made by mixing tamarind paste with warm water
  • Thai Fish Sauce - 1 tbsp
  • Spring Onions to garnish

  • Heat a wok, do not add oil at this stage, add dry red chillies and dry fry them. Do not let them burn. Set them aside to cool.
  • Add the oil now to the wok, add the chopped garlic, onion, shallots to it and fry for 2 - 3 Min's or until golden brown.
  • Next add the fish sauce, red chillies, tamarind juice and stir. Bring it to boil and then lower the heat slightly.
  • Add the prawns and little water, cook in the lower flame until the prawns are cooked. Garnish with spring onions ans serve.
* Rub the prawns with salt twice or thrice to avoid smell and wash thoroughly. Wash it three to four times otherwise it will taste very salty.
*If needed only add salt, because while cleaning the prawns we have used salt. Taste it and accordingly add the salt.
*Leave a few prawns in their shells only the tail part for a garnish, if you like.
