Ingredients

  • 1 kilogram Jumbo Shrimp - peeled & deveined

  • 1 tablespoon Green Seasoning

  • 3 tablespoons Curry powder

  • 1 tablespoon Amchar or Garam (hot) Masala

  • 3 tablespoons Coconut Oil

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Milk Powder

  • 150 ml Water - hot

  • 1 medium Onion chopped

  • 3 cloves Garlic minced

  • 3 Seasoning Peppers minced

  • 3-6 Chadon beni minced

  • Salt & Black Pepper to taste

  • 1 cup Basmati Rice Cooked

Instructions

Season the peeled and deveined shrimp with the green seasoning and 1 tablespoon of curry powder, then let marinate in a container for at least 1 hour or overnight for more depth of flavor.

Using a heavy bottom pot or deep skillet add the coconut oil and bring to a medium-high heat.

Once the oil is hot, add the onion, garlic, seasoning peppers, and chadon beni and sauté for 3-5 minutes or until the onions are translucent.

Add the curry and masala powder and mix into a paste with the seasonings. Add 50 ml of water if it’s too dry.

Turn the heat down to medium-low, add the seasoned shrimp to the pot, and cook for 1-2 minutes.

Mix in the coconut milk powder and water using a wooden spoon, cook for another 2 minutes until the shrimp are fully cooked, and the mixture is a lovely creamy gravy consistency.

Remove from the heat and serve in plates with overcooked basmati rice and enjoy.
