  • Recipe Ingredients listCurry leaves, turmeric, salt, red chilly powder



Marinate the shrimp with a tsp of ginger garlic paste, a pinch of salt, turmeric, and red chilly powder. Microwave/heat the tamarind dipped in about 2 tbsp of water so we can get some paste out of it. If you do not have raw tamarind, use 1 to1.5 tsp of tamarind paste. While that is marinating, in a pan, add coconut oil. Once it heats up, add mustard seeds. Once they start spluttering add curry leaves in. Add the onions in. When the onions start to brown a little, add the shredded coconut in. Let it fry for a moment. Keep on stirring it well to prevent the coconut from sticking to the pan. Once the coconut brown a little, add the finely chopped garlic and grated ginger. Stir fry a little, and add the Malvani masala. Add the tamarind paste in. Add the shrimp and some salt and mix everything well. The mixture might feel too dry. Add about 2 spoons of water but not more. The shrimp will release some water. Once the shrimp cooks, if you want the masala to have a runny texture, add water accordingly.
