This recipe is inspired from a wonderful person that's my mother in law. She makes the best Non-veg dishes reveling her own cooking style. Shrimps cooked in spicy coconut based sauce gives it an amazing depth of flavors! This curry gets smooth, thick texture imparted from the addition of coconut. The dish forms a perfect combo with plane boiled rice, roti or chapati!
