This dish was popular with the Bengal Lancers regiment around the turn of the century. For a change of pace, try it over pasta or Indian basmati rice. Sprinkle shrimp with salt and turmeric. Toss well to coat; cover and set aside for 15 minutes. Combine mustard, cumin, garlic, ginger, chiles and lemon juice in a blender and puree. Set aside. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add pureed spice mixture. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato and cook until soft. Add shrimp, stir gently to coat them evenly. Pour in the water and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook until shrimp are just opaque, about 5 minutes. Mound rice into heated serving plates. Spoon curry over and serve. Note: Basmati rice has a distinctive nutty flavor. It is available at Indian, Middle Eastern, some specialty food stores and supermarkets.

rugbyplayer 4 years agoSorry but this was bland and uninteresting. Spices didn't come through at all, seems like there is something missing in the recipe, or not enough of the tumeric or the cumin.
