Put the prawns in a large bowl and sprinkle salt on them. Keep aside.
Roast the dry red chilies, cumin seeds, cloves and cinnamon till they begin to release their aroma. Take off from the fire and cool.
Grind the ginger, garlic and roasted spices into a smooth paste using the vinegar.
Heat the oil on a medium flame in a wok-style pan. Add the prawns and stir fry till opaque. Remove from the pan and keep aside.
In the same pan, fry the onions till light brown. Add the tomato and fry till soft.
Now add the spice-vinegar paste, sugar and salt to taste and fry till the oil begins to separate from the masala.
Add the prawns to this masala, mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Serve with piping hot, plain boiled rice.
