4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 200 grams cooked prawns (small-sized prawns are best for this recipe)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 Thai green chili, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons yogurt
  • 2 eggs


  1. Toss the cooked prawns with 1 teaspoon of red chili powder, 1 teaspoon of garam masala, a pinch of turmeric powder, and salt. Set it aside while you are preparing the rest of the ingredients. This will allow time for the prawns to marinate with the spices.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a pan. Add 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds. Once the seeds are slightly roasted, add the chopped onions and cook over medium to high flame. Keep stirring till the onions are half-cooked. Then, add the chopped Thai green chili. Stir it for a few seconds.
  3. Add the rest of the red chili powder, garam masala, turmeric, and pepper powder. Add salt as per your taste preference. Mix and let the spices blend.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook till the tomatoes are well mashed and blended with the spices.
  5. Add the cooked prawns and stir.
  6. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan. Once the butter has melted, add 3 tablespoons of yogurt. Stir it in and let the spices blend with the yogurt. Taste and adjust the salt and spices as per your preference.
  7. Break the eggs on top of the prawn masala. Cover the pan and let it cook for 1 minute. Uncover the pan and stir in the eggs until well cooked.
  8. Serve with wheat roti, dosa, or any Indian flatbread.
