Unakka Chemmeen Varuthathu/Dry Prawns Fry


1/2 cup - Dry prawns, cleaned (ideal for 2 people)
1 - Large Onion, chopped
2 sprigs of curry leaf
1 tbsp - Oil, preferably coconut oil
1/2 tsp - Red chilly powder
salt to taste(if required)


1. Heat a pan or kadhai. In the meantime, quickly rinse the prawns in water and drain out all the excess water and put it into the hot pan. Saute till all the water has evaporated.
2. When the prawns is free of water, add half the quanity of chopped onion and curry leaves.
3. Pour the oil and saute it on medium heat till the onions turn light brown. At this stage add the rest of the onion and curry leaf. Add salt if required. As salt is put while drying the prawns, check whether you really need to add salt or not.
4. Fry till the prawns and the first set of onions get crispy. The second set of onions would be a little less done but thats what make it special. If the entire quantity of onion is browned there are chances of the dish tasting burnt.
5. Add the chilly powder just 1 minute before you turn off the gas. Mix well till the raw smell is gone.
6. Serve hot with rice.
