Image
This recipe includes pomegranate juice as a savoring agent; the reason why the prawn roast has a special red color. Very delicious and with health benefits.

Ingredients

Shrimp/prawns- 1/2 kg
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Ginger-garlic paste-1 tsp
Salt-
Coriander powder-1 tbsp
Pepper powder-1 tsp
Red Chilly powder-3 tsp
Onion-1 small chopped
Pomegranate Juice- 1/2  tbsp
Heavy Cream (Optional)

Method of preparation

Marinate prawns/shrimp with the powdered ingredients.
Heat 1-2 tsp oil in a pan. Saute ginger-garlic paste and chopped onion. Now mix in the marinated prawns and cook it for 1 minute.

Pour in 1/2 cup of pomegranate juice into it, at this stage and saute well until the juice dries and we get tangy, spicy well-cooked prawns. (Sprinkle more salt at this stage if required)
The total cooking time of the prawns must not exceed more than 5 minutes.  (Overcooking will make it rubbery.)

Pomegranate juice provides a slight rustic sourness to the dish. Very yum,do not forget to try out.
