Who says you need to cook curry in large portion? Love to try some  spicy fried prawns quick and easy?  This recipe is the answer. 
I tried and loves it.  Quick, simple, tasty and not too spicy prawn dish.  If you like it more spicy with extra Oomph, just add some chilli boh or pepper.  I believe it would be NICE, too.
You can cook the curry dry or with some gravy.  

[serves 2-3]
8 – 12 medium large prawns – trim the head and tail – rinsed and drained
1-2 springs of curry leaves
1 yellow onion – peeled and chopped
2 tbsp fish curry powder mixed into a paste with some water
1 tsp chilli boh or some pepper [optional]
100-150 ml water
1 tbsp fish sauce
1/2 tsp salt and sugar to taste
1-2 tbsp oil
  1. Heat oil in a non stick pan, sauté chopped onions and curry leaves until fragrant.  Add in curry paste.  Stir constantly until aromatic before adding the prawns. 
  2. Stir well and fry until prawn shells turned pink and almost cooked.  Pour in the water, bring to boil for 5 minutes or until the sauce is reduced. Taste to adjust seasoning.
  3. Dish up to serve with rice.
