Hot & Sweet Shrimp

January 1, 2000


I copied this down from a package. I’m trying to tweak it to my pleasure with real spices/ingredients, not what is included in the pre-fab package.


  • 1 lbs. shrimp (shelled)
  • 2 onions (diced)
  • 4 tomatoes (diced)
  • 2 tbs tomato puree
  • 4 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 3 green chillies (diced)
  • 2 tbs sugar (raw best)
  • couple dashes coriander
  • couple dashes cumin
  • couple dashes tumeric
  • couple dashes red chili powder
  • couple dashes amchoor (mango powder)
  • couple dashes garam masala


Fry onions with oil until golden brown. Add in garlic & cook a few more minutes. Add in cumin, coriander, red chili and tumeric & cook for a bit longer. Then add sugar & garam masala & cook for a bit longer. Stir in tomatoes, tomato puree and amchoor, cooking for 5 minutes or so. Lower heat, add in shrimp & cook until shrimp is tender.

Serve with Naan and/or rice.
