Spicy prawns

Yet another south Indian recipe. Kindly set your taste buds at a slightly higher level to detect spice.... cause this is going to be really spicy. Here it goes...

Prawns - 750 grams
chilly powder - 3 tbsp
pepper powder - 2 tbsp
oyster sauce - 4 tbsp
green chillies - 4 nos
oil - 4 tbsp
salt for taste( if required only)

Marinate prawns with chilly powder and oyster sauce. Heat oil in a pan or wok, add marinated prawns and stir fry till color changes. Add pepper powder, salt to taste and cover and cook for 5 min. Now add green chillies and cook till its completely dry. Garish with coriander leaves and serve.

No need to add water. The prawn has to cook in its own juices. Add salt after checking as oyster sauce is salty and so is the prawns.
