1. Heat the oil and butter in a haandi or saucepan over a medium heat until the butter has melted. Throw in the peppercorns, black cardamoms, cinnamon and bay leaf and fry for about 1 minute. Add the leeks and fry gently over a low heat for 3-5 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, blend together the tomato puree, single cream, water, ground coriander, chilli powder, garlic, ginger and salt. Pour the spice mixture on to the leeks and simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Finally, add the prawns and stir-fry for 5-7 minutes. Serve garnished with the fresh coriander.
