How to make Coconut Shrimp Curry


This is one of my favorite Indian recipes. You can make it as spicy as you like (I like mine hot so I usually add more chilis). The coconut milk really brings the flavors through, and the tomatoe adds a tinge of sourness that finishes the dish off nicely.

  1. In a spice grinder, grind the cinamon, red chilis, cloves, and cardamon seeds - set aside
  2. Add oil to pan and saute the chopped onion until golden brown - add bay leaf
  3. Add garlic and ginger paste
  4. Puree the tomatoe in a food processor and add to saute
  5. Add the turmeric
  6. Add the shrimp (you may cut off the tails if you like)
  7. Add the ground spice mix from step #1
  8. Add cayenne pepper
  9. Add 1/2 - 1 cup of water and let boil until the shrimp are pink. Do not overcook, as the shrimp will become rubbery
  10. Add coconut milk and reduce heat
  11. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves

    If you want a bit more tanginess and sourness to the dish, add about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of lemon juice!

    I made this for dinner tonight and my husband and I both *loved* it. I'm kind of a wimp when it comes to spicy food, so instead of grinding the chilis I just put them in whole and took them out before serving, which worked well for us. Thanks for the great recipe! :)
