Prawn Aloo Curry

Prawn Aloo Curry (Odia: ଚିଙ୍ଗୁଡ଼ି ଆଳୁ ତରକାରୀ) is one of my favorite Odia dishes.  I haven't come across any person who would deny loving prawns. It's a demanding item in Odisha from marriages to a bachelor's kitchen.

It's Friday the 13th today🤣🤣🤣 And what would be a better way to celebrate it. ଚିଙ୍ଗୁଡ଼ି ତରକାରୀ ଖାଇକି, ଘୋଡ଼ି ହେଇକି ଶୋଇବା କଥା ଖାଲି । 🤣🤣🤣



  1. Clean the prawns and marinate with salt, red chili powder, and turmeric powder (Haldi). Now, keep it aside.
  2. Take a pan and heat oil. Add the prawns and fry properly. They should turn golden brown.
  3. In the same pan, add a little more oil and fry potatoes, if adding. Keep aside.
  4. Take a kadhai (pan) and add oil. Add a tsp of sugar. Adding sugar is optional, but if you want a reddish tinge, then it will be really helpful.
  5. Then add jeera. Let them crackle.
  6. Add cinnamon sticks, cardamoms, bay leaf, and cloves. Sauté properly.
  7. Add ginger-garlic paste and chopped onions. Cook till the raw aroma of masala goes.
  8. Then add tomatoes and salt. Cook till mushy.
  9. Add jeera powder, dhania powder, kitchen king masala. Keep sautéing and cooking till oil separates from the masalas.
  10. When there is no raw aroma left, add the prawns and potatoes. Cook properly.
  11. Add hot water and mix properly. Cover the lid and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  12. Add garam masala. Cook for a minute. And switch off the flame.
