This is a lip-smacking dish that can be made in no time(if pre-cleaned shrimp is used)

  • Shrimp - 1 lb(about 35 medium shrimps), peeled, de-veined
  • Onion - 2 medium, diced
  • Roma tomato - 3, medium, diced
  • Fennel Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Ginger/Garlic Paste - 1 - 11/2 tbsp
  • Mint - 1 cup, finely chopped
  • Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp
  • Black Pepper - 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/8 tsp
  • Red Chilli Powder - 2 tsp or more
  • In a bowl, marinate the shrimp in lemon juice, turmeric powder and black pepper.
  • In a saute pan, heat oil, add the fennel seeds. Once fried, add the onions and brown it.
  • Follow-up with ginger/garlic paste and fry until the raw smell is gone.
  • Add the mint to the pan and fry a couple more minutes.Throw in the diced tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes until tomato loses shape.
  • Add the salt, chilli powder and give a gentle mix. Finally add the marinated shrimp and cook with lid on for 7-8 minutes and without the lid for a few more minutes until a thick gravy-like consistency is reached.
  • Serve hot with rice or roti.
