Kadai Shrimp Masala:


Shrimp - (I used frozen cooked)
Onions - 1 - chopped
Tomatoes - 1 - chopped
Tomato sauce - 1/2 cup
Ginger - 1/2 inch grated
Garlic - 5 to 6 pods - grated
Chilli powder - 1 tbspn
Coriander powder - 1 tbspn
Turmeric - 1 tspn
Cilantro leaves - 1/2 cup
Curry leaves - few


Heat a kadai and add 1 tbspn of oil and add onions, ginger, garlic, curry leaves and fry till raw smell disappears. Add turmeric, cilantro leaves, tomatoes and let the tomatoes cook for a while.
Add tomato sauce, chilli powder, coriander powder, salt. Let the whole masala cook till oil comes out. Now add shrimp and cook exactly for 4 minutes or maximum of 5 minutes.
If the shrimp is cooked any longer, it will become hard. If using raw shrimp, cook till shrimp turns pink and remove it from the stove. Serve piping hot!
