Shrimp curry


2 tbsp oil
1 1/2 cups cleaned shrimp

1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp fenugreek seeds
1/4 tsp cumin seeds optional
1/2 cup onion
1 cup tomatoes
1 tsp curry leaves
1 green chillie
1/4 tbsp chillie powder to taste
1/2 tbsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp salt to taste
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp coconut milk powder or 1/4 cup thick coconut milk or 1 tbsp fresh coconut grated
2 tbsp coriander leaves garnish

The curry can be made by removing the skin so it is easier to eat, the shrimp will shrink a little while cooking. It can also be made leaving the peel on the shrimp after cleaning it, some packets come already cleaned with the peel on.

Heat oil on medium high heat add mustard seeds after a few seconds fenugreek seeds then cumin seeds if using. Add onion, curry leaves, green chillie, ginger garlic paste and saute. Add shrimp and spices. When the shrimp turns pink add the tomatoes and mix. Add water and lower the heat to medium low. Cook the shrimp curry covered until the shrimp is soft to taste about 15 minutes. Add coconut milk or grated coconut and cook for a few more minutes uncovered. Remove from heat and serve with rice, flatbread or bread.
Don't overcook the shrimp, as some variety may become rubbery.
