Clean and soak the prawns in water for sometime. Cook the prawns in a pressure cooker till soft and a little water remains. Grind ingredients in 2 to a fine paste. Add the masala paste to the cooked prawns along with fish tamarind, curry leaves, and salt. Cook on low fire till all the water is absorbed. The prawns should be coated with thick masala. Remove from fire.

Heat oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds and fry onion in hot oil. Stir in the prepared prawns and saute till the prawns are well seasoned. Remove from heat and serve hot. Goes well with rice.
