Spicy Shrimp Curry

I made this tonight and it was goooood:).


Extra Large Shrimp - 12 cleaned, peeled and deveined
jalapeno - 1 small cut into pieces with seeds
Red Onions - 2 small finely chopped
Tomato - 1 medium finely chopped
Garlic cloves - 4 +2 Minced
Ginger - 1/2 inch stick minced
Lemon Juice - 2Tbsp.
Turmeric - Pinch
Masala Chilli Powder - 3 tsps.( My MIL sent this to me from india. I will try to get recipe soon)
Salt - to taste
coriander - 1 Tbsp chopped
Oil - as needed


Marinate the shrimp with 1/2 the jalapeno, 2 cloves of minced garlic, salt, turmeric, 1 tsp chilli powder and lemon juice. I marinate dit for an hour but you can even do it more.

Heat oil in a shallow pan. Place the shrimp in hot oil and cook on eac h side for 30 seconds. take them aside. In the same oil add rest of the jalapeno, garlic and ginger. Saute for 30 seconds and add onions. Add salt, turmeric and saute till soft. Add the chilli powder, shrimp and cook for 3 minutes. Add teh tomatoes 1/2 cup of water and cook on low flame covered for 10 minutes. Check in between to see the pan is not dry.

Remove teh lid and cook on medium flame till all the water is evaporated and you get a thick gravy. Top it off with freshly chopped coriander.
