Prawns  Butter Masala



Prawns Butter Masala is a preparation of prawns in a tomato and cream based gravy. Frying prawns in butter gives a beautiful flavor and aroma to the whole dish.

The cream and yoghurt adds a very rich taste to this gravy. When it is combined with the scrumptious buttery prawns gives you a finger licking combination.


I prefer Prawns Butter Masala to be served with rice, roti, nan etc. Check out my prawn cutlet. Enjoy!!
