Dry prawns and potatoes in Chilly Garlic Gravy - Konkani style

Today is Mother's Day and my parents are on a vacation to UK and Europe and am missing my Mom a lot.
So I made this curry today which is her favorite. 
Of course she is the one who makes it the best, but over the years I have mastered this dish too.
Very simple to make and quick...
Goes well with Red rice Konji or simply rice and dal.
Alter the spice as per your taste buds...
Serves 4
Dry prawns - 200 gms
Potato -1 - boiled and cubed
Red chilly powder - 1 tbsp (quantity of chilly can be altered according to taste buds)
Garlic - 8 flakes , lightly crushed with skin
Tamarind pulp - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Clean the dried prawns carefully to remove dirt, drain and keep aside.
Cut the potato into small bite sized cubes.
Now take a heavy bottomed pan, add 1 cup water and the washed dry prawns and potato pieces and bring to boil, around 5 mins.
Meanwhile, take a big seasoning pan, add 1 tbsp oil, add the crushed garlic cloves along with the skin, and fry well till almost golden. Now add 1 tbsp red chilly powder and within 2 secs put the tamarind pulp and mix and fry for 1 min.
Now pour into the vessel which has prawns and mix well.
Serve hot with steaming white rice or red boiled rice.
