Chingri Qorma / Prawn Korma

Qorma or Korma is a yoghurt based dish with meat predominantly but fish or seafood or vegetarian versions are there too. I prefer the Mutton Qorma any day but today having Jumbo Prawns at home I chose to make Prawn Korma or Chingri Qorma over lunch. Polished it off with steamed rice
