Shrimp Curry Recipe
These firm, juicy shrimp in a thick, spicy gravy can be eaten with rice or roti for a wholesome, satisfying meal.
It is essential to cook with the freshest, cleanest shrimp. This is a quick and easy recipe for busy, mid-week meals or lazy weekends. It takes a little time to sauté the onions and tomatoes but the shrimp take no time at all to cook through.
I’ve made this shrimp curry over the years for my family and they enjoy eating it with white basmati rice. I hope you enjoy it too!
