Let’s Make Prawns In Kandar Curry Gravy

- Salt and Sugar (optional)
- Pour some oil in a heated frying pan. Pan-fry the prawns on both sides till pink in colour. Do the pan-frying in batches. Leave the pan-fried prawns on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
- Transfer the oil that was used to pan-fry the prawns to a heated cooking pot (The oil has a lot of umami flavour in it). Add in the Kandar Curry Gravy and give a good mix. Let it to simmer for a minute or 2.
- If the gravy is too thick, add in some water to thin the gravy. The amount of water depends on how thick or thin you want the gravy to be. Give a good stir. Do a taste test. If it lacks salt or sugar, you can add it to suit your palate.
