    Method:

    Heat the oil and add mustard seeds till it crackles followed by garlic, curry leafs & a pinch of turmeric.
     
    Add prawns and cook till almost done (5 minutes or so).
     
    Season (salt and lemon juice) & add the chilly. Cook till prawns are done (make sure they do not get- dried/ brown/over cooked/burnt/tough).
     
    Place on the plate as shown in the picture.
