                   poached egg is an egg that has been cooked in simmering liquid.A perfect poaching is cooked white and inside a runny yolk.To prevent dispersion of the white of the egg, a small amount of vinegar may be added to the boiling water.

mayonnaise-1 tbsp(optional)

             ** To poach an Egg:

prawn masala

It is a curry dish goes well with any kind of main dish.prawn is a common name and it is  called as shrimp.prawn is a very delicious meat and people love it.This is my version of cooking prawns.

            Many of people don't know how to clean the prawns.Usually cleaned prawns in markets, wont remove vein on the back of prawn.Have to hold it straight and make a slit on top to bottom.there will be a black thread like vein there, remove it carefully and clean with fresh water.If used without removing the vein it may ruin the dish.


prawns-500 gms

mustard seeds-1 tsp

onion-1 big,chopped

tomato puree-1 tbsp

red chilly powder-1 tsp

turmeric pr-1/2 tsp

garam masala pr-1/2 tsp

soy sauce-1/2 tsp

In a heavy-bottomed pan add oil to heat and add mustard to splutter.Then add onions saute well then add the powders toss them till raw smell disappears  add the tomato puree and soy sauce mix well add the prawns and salt stir fry till it cooks well.Garnish with coriender and curry leaves and serve.
