Spicy Shrimp/Prawn Curry

This is one of the easiest and tastiest shrimp curry ever. Shrimp is one favorite food of my boy and he likes different variety of dishes prepared with shrimp so I have to keep trying out new dishes with it by making changes with the ingredients and even a little variation to the same dishes he likes a lot but this dish turned out to be little spicy than I expected so he did not like this dish L but he did like it to eat with dosa, this is a excellent dish when eaten with rice and I really enjoyed every mouth of it with rice. This is very simple to make and I bet every one of you will sure love this dish.

Shrimp – ½ lb
Onion – 1 finely chopped
Tomato – 2 finely chopped
Tomato paste – 1 tsp (optional)
Green chilies – 2 slit
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
Coriander Powder – 2 tsp
Cumin powder – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
Chili powder – 1 tsp
Cloves – 3
Cardamom – 3
Cinnamon – ½”
Salt to taste
Cilanto to garnish
Oil – 3tsp

Clean and de-vein the shrimp and set aside.
Heat oil in a non-stick pan and add the clove, cardamom and cinnamon and when its aromatic add the onion and fry till it turns brown and add the green chilies and ginger garlic paste and fry.
Add all the dry powders one by one and mix and add the tomato and cook until tomato turns to pulp by adding little water to it.
Now add the tomato paste and mix and add shrimp and give a good mix and add 1 and ½ cups of water and close and cook in a reduced flame for 10 mins or until the curry like consistency is reached and garnish with cilantro.
Serve hot with rice and enjoy!!!
