Era Thokku / Prawn Thokku / Shrimp Thokku

Era thokku /Prawn thokku is my favourite since I tasted this in my friend's home during my school days...Her mom is an expert in non veg dishes(in veg too..)..I saw this recipe here and tried and it came out sooo good...We all liked it a lot....Goes well with rice as side dish...also with pulavs and chapathis....Spicy and tangy era thokku is easy to prepare too...Here's the recipe...


Shrimp(cleaned)1/2 cup
Lemon juice1/2 tblsp
Turmeric powder1 pinch
Chilli powder1 tblsp
Saltas needed
Garlic4 pods
Onion1 medium
Tomato1 medium
Curry leaves1 sprig
Mustard1 tsp
Cumin seeds1 tsp
Oil1 tblsp


Clean shrimp well and marinate it with lemon juice, turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt...Let it stand for atleast half an hour and upto  2or 3 hours...

In a kadai, heat some oil and add musatard, cumin seeds and grated garlic to it...Let it brown a bit and add finely chopped onion...Let the onion fry well and become slightly brown...

Then add the chopped tomato...Fry till oil oozes on sides...Add the marinated shrimp and 1/8 cup water....Let it cook till shrimp gets cooked( 2 minutes)...

Wait till oil oozes out again...Remove from heat and serve...Top with chopped curry leaves....
