Era soup – Prawn soup

This is the only soup amma makes with any sea food. She makes it whenever we catch cold. Nowadays its all reserved for the kids. She says its so very good and nutritious for them. Its also too delicious and since does not have anything hot its given for babies that are above 1 year old. Even my fussiest kid would drink a bowl of this without a word.

This is one of the bounty she made for her dear grand children when we had the prawns curry. Its a simple yet fabulous soup.

Era soup / Prawn soup

Fresh cleaned prawns – 1 handful
ginger garlic paste – 1/2 tea spoon
Vegetable broth or plain water – 2 cups
onion – 1/2 chopped
tomato – 1 small chopped
Peanut oil – 1 tea spoon
turmeric – 1 pinch

How to make it ?

In the thick bottomed vessel heat the oil and once hot add the ginger garlic paste. Saute till they turn golden and add the onions. Cook till the onions are soft. Add the prawns and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and required salt and the water / vegetable broth along with the turmeric. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Now simmer it for 10 minutes. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.
