Sungta kalkali upkari (prawns potato curry)

Day before I was talking to my grand mom’s sister she asked me about my lunch menu.  I had bought prawns that day and I was planning to prepare our traditional prawns curry.  Then she remembered about one recipe her mom used to prepare and she gave the recipe to me.  But they used to prepare it with dry prawns/shark since I didn’t like the smell of dry fish I thought of preparing it with fresh prawns.
Prawns ceaned                        - 1 cup
Potato  cubes                             - ½ cup
Red chilly powder                     -  1 tbsp
Crushed garlic(with skin)         -  7 to 8
Tamarind pulp                           -  1or 2 tbsp
Oil                                                 -   2 tsp
Salt to taste
·      In a mud pot add potato and prawns with 1 cup of water and salt cook till done.
·      Then add tamarind pulp and mix well.
·      Heat oil in kadai add crushed garlic fry till light brown then add chilly powder fry for a minute add this to prawns potato mixture.
·      Boil this is in a flame for 10 to 15 minutes,
