Prawns in tomato and onion gravy

I love eating seafood and Prawns are one of my favorite. I've made them in a coconut gravy and a cilantro lime gravy. This one is very flavorful with the sweetness of onions and the tartness from the tomatoes. It also had a good amount of spice to it from the garam masala which is basically a mixture of a few different spices ground up together. This is the first time i've made them in the tomato and onion gravy. Another dish that i grew up eating. Mom's cooking is always the best and to learn from the top chef is even better:)) Here's the recipe: ( serves 4 ppl)

1 pound Shrimp headed and cleaned
2 meduim red onions chopped fine
2 roma tomatoes or any other type
1/4 tspn turmeric powder
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tbsp fresh ginger,garlic and chili paste
a handful of chopped cilantro for garnishing
salt to taste

1)In a large pan, heat some oil and cook onions with the lid on until onions are well cooked. about 5 to 10 mins on medium heat. Stir frequently to prevent onions from browning to fast.

2) Add in the tomatoes and cooked for another 5 mins. Add in turmeric powder, fresh paste, and salt and cook for about 2 to 3 mins

3) Toss in the shrimp and cook until done. Add in garam masala and cilantro. Mix and serve with roti or rice.
