Prawns in Green Masala

This is a lovely dish we make quite often with fish or prawns . You could make it with a thick gravy by adding more water . I preffer it to be a thick masala .The recipe is approximates , go with your taste buds.
1500 Grams Prawns - Clean remove heads and shell but keep tails.
4 Tablespoons Tamarind Paste.
1 Cup Coconut Milk.
Masla Ingredients :
1 Coconut chopped.
1 Mug Green Coriander , chopped.
6 Green Chilies.
1/3 Cup Mint Leaves.
10 Cloves Garlic.
20 Medium Sized Lady Fingers - ends trimmed , bhindi is optional to use and a very good option !
Blend all the masala ingredients keep aside for 1 hour.
If using ladyfinger , saute in a wok over high heat for 5 minutes till done. Set aside.
Heat coconut oil , saute 1 chopped onion till translucent , then add masala ingredients and cook covered till you see a bit of oil . Maybe 5-7 minutes. You also may need to sprinkle some water while it cooks.
Add prawns , increase heat to high and cook prawns 3-5 minutes , then cover and cook another 2-3 minutes till done. Now add 1 mug coconut milk , tamarind paste and the bhindi if you are using them , simmer over low heat to blend in flavors . This is really delicious.
