That would be such fun Sarita, but I hve a feeling we have more of a chance of meeting up in India as I never get to Wisconsin-too cold for my California blood. I m going to try this recipe this weekend. I have some lovely fresh water shrimp rom India in the freezer, but they are quite large. Do you think smaller Tiger prawns would be better for this recipe? Shanti/Mary-Anne
Sarita.Bhandarkar's picture
oh yes Shanti...there is a chance of meeting up in India...I think smaller tiger prawns are a good option because I used the same...And it cooks faster as we are not adding any water to this curry...

Looks absolutely delicious. Good one. So did you manage to get curry leaves in your Desi-Store?
Sarita.Bhandarkar's picture
yes Snigdha... I get them now...But I make sure to bring more and store it for a few days so that I can use it for more days in case there would be some problem :)
