    Girl from India's Note:

    Bhuna is the Indian equivalent of Stir frying and sauteing on medium high heat. The high heat helps meld the flavours of the spices into the vegetables or meat. Remember to keep a little water at the side whenever you try any bhuna dish to keep the dish from charring. Posting for a friend :) You can make this dish dry or add water towards the end to thin down the gravy. The recipe calls for Puri but I like it with Rotis/ Phulkas better as it is a lighter option to the deep-fried Puri .

      I am giving this 5 stars because the taste was spot on, I had this in a restaurant last night and came home and wanted to replicate it. This did it for me perfectly, however I was alittle confused by the 'green pepper' in the instructions but not in the ingredients list (did you mean green chilies?) Also on instruction 6.... pour the balti sauce over everything???? no idea what you meant by that but obmitted it and carried on. I added my cooked prawns at the end and heated through completely and it was spot on....thank you for sharing, I'll definately make this again. Served with Delicious Homemade Puri!

      Delicious hot and spicy--a great way to prepare pawns. I made a few minor changes in this recipe by using 3 green onions (instead of the red) and only using 1 green chili. I also skipped the garam masala powder because I wasn't sure what it was and used catsup instead of the tomato puree. As for serving these delicious prawns, instead of puris we had this over Quick Tava Rice Quick Tava Rice. Delicious quick and easy supper! Next time I will try to make the puris and serve as suggested. Thanks for sharing this keeper! We will be having this again soon!
