This curry is the simplest of all. Made by the Goan Mangalorean communities, you can also find similar recipes in many Konkan and coastal regions. I made the same recipe with Fish.


For shrimp:
Shrimp 500 Gram
Salt To Taste
Chilli powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Turmeric powder 1/2 Teaspoon
For masala:
Kashmiri chilies 6
Tamarind 1 Inch (soaked in 1/2 cup hot water)
Cumin seeds 1 Tablespoon
Coriander seeds 1 Tablespoon
Ginger pieces 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Fresh garlic 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Onion 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Coarse salt 1 Teaspoon
Water 2 Cup (32 tbs) (for grinding)
Turmeric powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Shredded fresh coconut/Frozen coconut 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
For bhindi:
Green chillies 3
Kokam petals 5
Okra 300 Gram



1. Soak the red chillies in hot water overnight.

2. Marinate the Shrimp with the salt, chilli & turmeric powder and keep aside.


3. Remove the stems and grind with all the other ingredients adding water a little at a time.

4. Once you have a smooth paste, strain it, reserve all the liquid and add the solids back into the food processor with more water and strain again.

5. Repeat this process a few times till all the solids have turned into a smooth gravy.

6. Heat some oil and shallow fry the Shrimp on both sides and remove.

7. Add the gravy to the pot and also this to come to a rolling boil.

8. Add the green chillies & kokam

9. Add the Okra and cook for 7 - 10 mins.

10. Add the Shrimp back in and allow to cook completely covered.


11. Serve and enjoy!
