Take a bowl, add prawns followed by turmeric and salt. Set aside for some time.
Now, in a pan, add cumin seeds and coriander seeds. Roast the seeds without any oil for 5-6 minutes. Once done, turn the heat off and grind them together with cloves and dried red chillies.
To this add, coconut, ginger-garlic paste and a little vinegar or lemon juice. Blend until smooth and consistent paste (add water, if required).
After that, heat oil in another pan, add onion and fry them until brown. Then add tomatoes and coconut paste along with salt. Keep stirring for 10 minutes or until tomatoes turn mushy and soft.
Add water and simmer again, then add prawns and cook for 10 minutes or until required consistency.
The last step is to add tamarind paste, some coriander leaves.
Cover for 3-4 minutes and voila, your authentic goan prawn curry is ready to savour!
Serve it with a bowl of steamed rice.
