Masala Shrimps

Mum in her visits here always brings me shrimps from Kuwait, they are cleaned and de-veined and zip-locked ready to be used.  So decided to use it up with Ramani Aunty's recipes from her Book on Series of Classic Recipes from Kerala....

Shrimps - 300gms cleaned and de-veined
Garlic paste - 1tbs
Chili Powder - 3tbs
Turmeric Powder - 1/4tsp
Aniseed Powder - 1/2tsp
Ground Cinnamon - 1/4tsp

Ground Clove - 1/4tsp
Onion - 2medium finely sliced
Black pepper and salt to taste

Squeeze the water out from the shrimps, combine shrimps with chili, turmeric, aniseed, clove, cinnamon powders, salt and the garlic paste with 1/4cup water in a non-stick pan. Cover and cook the shrimps till the gravy coats. Heat oil in a frying pan, saut√© the onions till lightly brown, stir fry the shrimps until browned. Sprinkle in the black pepper before serving.


  1. Masala shrimp looks absolutely delicious.

  2. That does look good, great starter dish. I need to look up that cookbook, I have not seen it around in stores.

  3. Ann: it comes as a set of 5 -Saute, Poultry, Seafood, drinks, and thorans...neat collection 75bucks each!


Thank you for your time in my space. Would love to hear your reviews and comments!
