Scallops like prawns cook superfast - so thats one thing to lookout for.I seared my scallops a minute and set aside.Soaking Kokum in a bit of water will release flavors and colors.If you dont have kokum use imly to taste.
Heat oil , Splutter mustard seeds , add curry leaves and dried red chilies.When chilies color ,add chili powder , and 10 seconds later tip in the onions and cook till translucent.
At this stage all other ingredients apart from scallops go in .Cover and cook on medium low till oil comes up . Add a bit of water water if you want a thick gravy , I kept mine ' lug lipta' . Taste your gravy , adjust .. now in go the scallops.Cook another minute, take off heat and set aside covered for 5 minutes . Dig in !
Quick , flavorful and so delicious !
