Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok. Then add the chopped onions and stir fry them until they turn slightly brownish. Then add the prawns. Stir fry them for about 5 minutes. Chop 1/2 of the green chillies (4 chillies) and add them as well.
After that, add the red chilli powder, ground coriander, turmeric, ground cumin seeds and salt. Add the ginger and garlic paste. Then put 2 tablespoons water and mix them thoroughly. Stir fry for 5 minutes.
Add water and let it be for a while, but stir and turn the shrimps in between to avoid burning or overcooking.
When 1/2 of the water has evaporated, and the water starts to boil, lower the heat and put the lid on top of the utensil. Make sure to stir them occasionally. Continue this process for about 10 minutes.
Serve hot. Top the dish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.
Make sure to keep turning the prawns to avoid burning or over cooking. Serve and eat with rice.
