Step 1:

Start by cooking the chopped brinjals to a mashable consistency.

To achieve this, add the brinjals/eggplants to a pot with some water.

Cook the brinjals until they turn mushy. Keep it aside.

Step 2:

Heat oil in a pan. Add 1 tsp cumin seeds. Once the seeds are slightly roasted, add the chopped onions. The seeds only require a few seconds to be roasted. Add in the onions soon after few seconds to avoid the seeds getting burnt.

Once onions are half cooked, add the chopped thai chilis. I added 1 green and 1 red thai chilli. You can also add 2 green thai chilis instead.

Sprinkle some salt as per your tastebuds' preferences.

Add madras curry powder. Mix it in and let the spices blend for a few seconds.

Step 3:

Add the shrimp/prawns. The small-sized ones taste better for this recipe.

Step 4:

After 1-2 min, add the cooked eggplants.

Then, add the garam masala and red chilli powder.

Once the spices blend, add in the yogurt.

Taste and adjust yogurt quantity as needed.

Step 5:

Once the prawns are cooked, sprinkle the coriander/cilantro leaves and get ready to serve the tasty seafood delicacy :-)

P.S.: Please refer ingredients section for individual quantity.
