Sri Lankan fried prawns (Isso Thel Dala)

This is a quick and easy prawn (Isso) recipe, which can be made in less than 15 minutes.

I use large Madagascan prawns, heads removed. You can remove the shell as well but this is entirely up to you. Wash the prawns thoroughly.

Finely slice

  • ½ an onion,
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • ½ inch of ginger
  • 2 green chilies
  • 1 tomato

pinch of

  • Turmeric
  • chili powder
  • salt

2 curry leaves

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan.
  2. Add curry leaves, fry for some time and
  3. add ginger, garlic, onion and the sliced tomato.
  4. Fry for 2 minutes while mixing.
  5. Add chili powder, turmeric (Kaha) and salt.
  6. Add the prawns, fry for 10 minutes while mixing.

Prawns will turn to a nice pink colour to match with the rest of the dish.
Serve with boiled rice.
