Shrimp/ prawn half lb
Chopped Onion 1 cup
Turmeric powder half teaspoon
Chili powder half teaspoon
Green chilies , split 4 or 5
Salt to taste
Chopped cilantro
A little extra turmeric- chili powder to rub the shrimps


1. Rub the shrimps with little turmeric, chili powder and little salt.

2. Heat oil and fry the shrimps a minute or so. Don’t over fry them . The flesh of the shrimp will get harder if overcooked .

3. In another bowl take chopped onion, Mix them well with turmeric powder, chili powder and salt . Make the onions little soft by help of your hand.

4. Now add the onion into the pan and mix well with the shrimps . Cook the shrimp on medium low heat . Stir occasionally so that the onion should not get burnt. Don’t add any water. For this recipe u need to use enough oil since no water will be used .

5. Within few minutes the onion will get softer. Add green chilies then . Keep cooking them. When it’s done add some chopped cilantro .
