Eral Muttai Masala is a stir fry made with fresh water prawns, scrambled eggs and spices. It’s a perfect side dish for a South Indian lunch with sambar or a dal.
3 tablespoon Indian sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 sprigs curry leaves
2 green chillies
1/2 cup onions, sliced
2 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
2 tomatoes, sliced
3/4 teaspoon salt + 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
2 teaspoon coriander powder
250 grams of prawns (freshwater)
1 teaspoon black pepper powder
3 sprigs coriander leaves, chopped
Add Indian-style sesame oil to the pan. Vegetable oil can also be used for making this recipe. Add some fennel seeds and cumin seeds. Fennel seeds add a nice aroma and flavour while cooking prawns. Add some fresh curry leaves and some chopped green chillies. Add the sliced onions and saute for a few minutes till the onions are soft. Once the onions are soft, add the crushed ginger garlic paste. Add the sliced tomatoes and the salt along. The salt will help cook the tomatoes faster. Mix everything to combine. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for a few minutes. The tomatoes should be cooked and completely mushy.
Once the tomatoes are cooked, add the spice powders. Add the turmeric powder, red chilli powder and coriander powder. Adjust the chilli powder according to your taste. Saute for a minute so the masala powders are cooked well.
Add the cleaned freshwater prawns to the pan. Mix well so the masalas coat the prawns well. Cover the pan and cook for a couple of minutes.
After cooking for a couple of minutes, move the prawn’s mixture to one side of the pan. Break 3 eggs and add them to the other side. Add a little salt. Mix well and scramble the eggs.
Once the eggs are scrambled and dry, mix them with the prawn mixture. Cook for a minute.
Add some black pepper powder and mix well.
Finally, add in a generous sprinkling of coriander leaves. Our Eral Muttai Masala is now ready.
