From Atul Kochhar, the bloke who had more dishes put through to the 
final than any other in The Great British Menu

8-12 Jumbo raw prawns
2 tbsp veg oil
1 tbsp sesame seed oil
2 large onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp salt
2sp chopped garlic
1sp ground turmeric
2 bunches fenugreek leaves, stems removed
1 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves
2 tbsp coriander leaves
1 bunch spring onions, trimmed and sliced

3 green chillis, stems removed
50g coriander leaves and stems
1stp ground tumeric
3 dried red chillis, halved and deseeded
1tsp cumin seeds
1tsp black pepper corns

Peel and de-vein thr praws, leaving the tail attached. Rinse and oat 
dry. Next prepare the green spice paste. Put all the ingredients in a 
blender or mini-processor and whiz to a fine paste. Spread half f the 
paste all over the prawns and set aside to marinade for 30 minutes.

Heat half of the vegetable and sesame seed oils in a deep saute pan. Add 
the remaining spice paste and saute gently for 2 minutes. Add the 
chopped onions and suate till translucent, then add the rest of the 
ingredients (except the prawn).

Heat the remaining oil in a seperate suate pan and fry the marinaded 
prawns for 1-2 minutes. Add the prawns to the onion mixture and simmer 
for about 5 minutes until they are cooked. Serve at once.
