    1. I bought it in a Sri Lankan grocery store, it is also available in Chinese stores as these dried shrimp is used in Thai, Singapore, Malaysian cuisine as well :) Inshallah hope you find
      You can substitute soaked, dried anchovies crushed as well if you can't find dried shrimp. I have also cooked it with fresh shrimp cut into small pieces :)
