MALAI SHRIMP CURRY

Am crazy of shrimps and prawns when it comes my fav in seafood. When we bring shrimps, I prepare this recipe for sure. The gravy combines the flavours of shrimps and coconut-milk into a rich creamy flavour. Prawns can also be added instead of shrimps. Usually served with hot steamed white rice.




INGREDIENTS.

7, 8 Shrimps

1 Chopped onions

1 Chopped Tomatoes

1 Green chillies

2 tbsps Garlic paste

1 tbsp Ginger paste

1 tbsp Garam masala

2 tsps Coriander powder

1 tsp Chilli powder

1/4 tsp Turmeric powder

1 tsp Cumin powder

1 cup Coconut milk

Few Curry leaves

3 tbsp Oil

Salt to taste

Coriander leaves for garnish.

METHOD

Peel Shrimps and remove the veins if it is not already cleaned.

Marinate shrimps with chilli powder , turmeric and salt. Keep it aside.

In a pan heat oil. Add ginger-garlic, greenchilli, curry leaves and onions. Saute onions till they become translucent. Now add tomatoes, red chilli pdr, coriander pdr, turmeric pdr, garam masala and salt. Saute till u get a nice aroma and all the ingredients are well fried in oil.

Add marinated shrimps , saute and cook well. Add water if needed. Simmer on low heat for about 2 min.

Lastly add coconut milk and bring to boil.

Garnish with coriander leaves.


I also submit this recipe to CURRY MELA HOSTED BY SRIVALLI

Serve hot with steamed rice.

Enjoy!!
