Easy Shrimp Curry

Both K and I love shrimp. This is an easy breezy recipe with loads of flavor.

1 lb uncooked shrimp, cleaned and deveined (I used the frozen ones for this)
2 potatoes, boiled, and cut into pieces
1 large onion, chopped
1 tomato
2 cloves garlic, minced
1" ginger, minced
1 large tomato, chopped
1/2 tsp jeera
1/2 tsp red chilli pwdr
1 tsp coriander pwdr
1/2 tsp jeera pwdr
1/2 tsp garam masala
Salt to taste
1 cup Water
Chopped coriander leaves, for garnish

Heat oil in a pan and fry the shrimp till light pink. Remove and keep aside. In the same pan, add more oil, if necessary and add the jeera. When it begins to sizzle, add the chopped onion. Cook till onion begins to turn brown. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute. Now add all the powder masalas, salt and tomato and cook till the masala gets cooked and oil separates. Add the boiled potatoes, shrimp and 1 cup water. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with Rice / Paratha. Enjoy !!
