shrimp fry

I love fish but my husband likes shrimp. So I make shrimp dishes regularly. It is also so much easier to make. Especially this shrimp fry will go with rice and any gravy/daal.

You can use both fresh or frozen shrimp for this. Just clean the shrimp by removing the outer cover (shell) and wash it.



  • Cleaned shrimp - 1 cup
  • Rava - 2 tablespoons
  • Tamarind - size of a marble
  • Chilli powder - 4 tablespoons
  • Tumeric powder - half teaspon
  • Garlic (optional)
  • Oil
  • Salt to taste


  • Cook the shrimp with some water till the shrimp changes colour and is well cooked (abt 10 minutes)
  • Meanwhile make a paste of the tamarind with a little water. Add the chilli powder, turmeric and salt to it and mix it to a fine paste. You can also add 2 cloves of crushed garlic at this stage.
  • Coat each shrimp with rava and shallow fry on a pan with a generous amount of oil.
  • Serve with onion and lime wedges.

Preparation time: 20 minutes
