  2. Hi, in Kerala, for any prawns dish, first in our homes, we cook it just with salt and turmeric powder in water for around 15 minutes until the water evaporates. Are you saying there is no need to pre-cook prawns separately? 3 minutes is enough? I am just curious because i have never cooked prawns by myself.

    1. Hey.. Yeah. its not only 3 mins. After u add prawns cook for 3 mins, the add rest of the ingredients. So when everything is done, it will be around 10 mins. Prawns will be cooked by then.
