Shrimp Curry Special

If you wanted to make a spicy Shrimp/Prawn Curry and didn’t now how to; Here is instructions to make it happen. You know what I’m not a Cook at all πŸ˜‰ I’m a beginner and I believe it would be easy for you to learn it from beginner rather than from an expert πŸ™‚ just kidding

Before me letting you know the steps, I have to give the credits.! And here goes the list, first friend of mine Seshadri, he is the one who provided timely instruction and offered much help and Rajkumar, our chief cook and guru and expert who served as inspiration behind this effort.

  • Large chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 1 jalapeΓ±o
  • V8 vegetable juice (added in place of tomato )
  • cinnamon added for smell
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seed

Detailed Instructions :

  1. Peel the shrimp and remove the tails. Clean it with water.
  2. Fry roast the mustard seed with cumin in oil and add the green pepper and jalapeΓ±o during the course.
  3. Add the chopped onion to the mix and allow it to fry.
  4. Add the curry powder, chili powder and fry for a further 2 to 3 minutes on low heat
  5. Add the vegetable juice and stir gently
  6. Add the ginger garlic paste and cinnamon and stir well with salt
  7. Let it simmer for 10- 15 minutes

I missed to add cilantro at the final step but make sure you don’t.
