Mom's Goan Prawn Chilly Fry

This was how my Mum used to have it made, back in the day, during the village times in Goa. It was a fond memory that I was hoping to recreate and preserve.

Food at its simplest and all about the flavour. There's no other way to describe this beauty of a dish!

Ingredients:
Prawns, deveined
8-10 whole dry kashmiri chillies
8 piece of kokum
3 onions

Method:
Cut the onions, first in half then each half into another half. Then slice finely. Wash and devein the prawns and salt and set aside.

Heat oil in a wok. Add the kashmiri chillies and the onions. Add in the kokum too. Give it a quick stir fry.

Keeping the heat high, add in the prawns. Toss to coat the prawns with the onions till they turn a nice pink. Once cooked turn off the heat and serve.
