Simple Prawn Bhuna

READY IN: 38mins
Recipe by Kikais Kitchen

Bhuna is I think my favorite type of Indian curry. It has quiet a mellow delicate flavor to it. Great with rice and Naan bread. You can play with the spices a little bit to adjust it accordingly to suit your taste. Preparation time includes marinating time.

Tasty, but 150ml is too much water to add, try 50ml. 10min is not long enough to reduce 150ml, and is too long to cook the prawns, they come out overdone, unless maybe you have particularly huge ones.
