Shrimps in tamarind masala
Small shrimps are used in the authentic recipe. Since I could not find the small shrimps here, I used the big ones easily available in all grocery stores.
Prawns 1/2 lb
Onion ( finely chopped) 1/2 cup
Garlic cloves(finely chopped) 1 big
Red chilies (hotter the better) 6-7
Tamarind Small lemon size
Fry onions in oil till they become almost brown then add garlic fry for another one minute.
Make paste of tamarind and red chillies and add this to onion mixture.
Add very little water(but gravy should be thick). Now add shrimp and salt and boil till the
shrimps are cooked.
Serves : 2
Preparation time : 10mins
