10 curry leaves
2 tbsp fresh grated coconut
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
Salt to taste
3 tbsp coconut oil.

Cooking Method.
In a deep earthen pot, add coconut oil, when oil is hot, add curry leaves and mustard seeds, when they splutter, add onion, green chilli and fry to lite brown.
Add grated coconut, red chilli powder, turmeric, coriander powder, garam masala and ginger garlic paste and fry for 1 minute. Then add chopped tomato's, lemon juice, salt and cook till the tomatoes are well cooked. Then add black and dry prawns, add little water if needed.

Finally, I'm posting one of my favourite recipe after waiting for like ages. Doughnuts are my most favourite and I love to have them anytime of the day. This is a very simple and easy recipe which can be made easily by the beginners also. I have tried this recipe like a hundred times and everytime I got the best doughnuts...

1+1/4 cup of all purpose flour, plus a bit more for dough
1/2tsp yeast
1/8cup sugar
1/4+1/8cup Luke warm water or milk (115c)
1/4cup melted butter
1tsp vanilla essence
1 egg
Oil for deep frying.

Ingredient's For The Glaze.
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Milk, as needed (about a 2tsp of milk)

Cooking Method.
In a small bowl, combine the warm milk and 1tsp sugar, sprinkle the yeast over the top and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
In the bowl mix the egg, milk, sugar, vanilla, melted butter and sugar. Mix till the sugar is dissolve. Then add flour, yeast water and mix. Knead the dough for 5 to 7 minutes or until you have a smooth dough. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and place it in a warm spot to rise for about 2 hours.
When the dough is doubled in size, punch the dough down and roll it out onto a floured surface into 1/2 inch thickness. Using a doughnut cutter, cut out the doughnuts and place them on a counter top and cover them with a kitchen towel and allow them to raise for another 15 to 20 minutes. In a mean time heat a oil in a deep frying pan, once the oil is hot lower the heat.
Now fry the doughnuts to golden brown on a medium flame. Then allow the doughnuts to cool completely before icing.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the icing sugar, vanilla essence and milk. mix everything until you get a consistency runny enough to dip the doughnut in.
Take the completely cooled doughnuts and dip into a glaze and place them on the cooling rack to set. 
You can glaze as you like and decorate the doughnuts as your wish.
