SHRIMPS IN APPLE GRAVY

One of the most popular ingredients under seafood dishes are shrimps and prawns that are enjoyed in many countries of the world. I love shrimps under different kinds of cuisine. Once we have been visited to Chinese hotel where we had shrimps cooked in pineapple gravy. It was a bit sweet and spicy too. One day I thought of preparing the same recipe with apple instead of pineapple. I am sure whoever like the taste of sour and sweet along with mild spiciness in recipe would love this.


INGREDIENTS.

10 Medium Size Shrimps

1 Apple.

1 Diced red onion.

1 tsp Tomato ketchup.

1 tsp Chilli sause.(optional)

1 tbsp Soya sause.

1 tbsp Lime juice.

1 Green chilly.

3 tsp Chopped ginger.

1 tsp Chopped garlic.

1 tsp oil.

Salt and papper to taste.

Chopped scallions for garnish.

METHOD.

Marinate shrimps and diced apple with salt and lime juice for 15 to 20 min. Apple can be diced along with skin, but here I have removed the apples skin and cut in to small pieces. Meanwhile in a pan heat oil and add ginger and garlic. Fry them till the raw smell is off. Later add diced onions and fry them half cooked. Add chopped chilies, soya sauce and tomato ketchup in the mix and stir it for a while. Finally add the marinated apple and shrimp mixture with half cup of water. Add salt and pepper according to taste. Close the lid and cook for 10 min. Garnish with chopped scallions.


Serve hot with 2 min maggi noodles. Njoy friends.

Firstly thank u soo much so visitng my blog .....so instead of shrimps i suggest u to add mushrooms or babycorns or even cauliflower because its a chinese sort of recipe so i think these item will suit..
