Shrimp is the most favorite non veg item next to Chicken, Mutton and Fish. Many of us think that cooking shrimp is time consuming and hard to cook. It's not true. Below are the simple steps to cook and enjoy the mouth watering Shrimp curry.


Fresh Shrimp - 1 cup
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Fennel seeds - 2tsp
Green chilli - 2
Ginger and garlic paste - 1 spoon
Turmeric powder - ¼ tsp
Chilli powder - 2 tsp
Coriander powder - 2tsp
Curry leaves (optional)
Oil for seasoning
Salt for taste.


Clean the shrimp properly. Usually shell will be there in the tail when buying from the market. Put the shrimp in hot water for 2 to 3 minutes. Later we can remove the shell easily.

Heat 3 tsp of oil in a pan. Once oil hot, add fennel seeds.

Once fennel seeds turned into golden color, add chopped onion and green chili and fry it.

Once the onion becomes translucent add ginger garlic paste. Instead of using the ready made paste, if we make our self with fresh ginger and garlic, Curry will be more tasty.

Fry it until the raw smell of ginger, garlic goes out.

Add Turmeric, chili, coriander powder and stir it.

Then add chopped tomato and stir it. Once the tomato becomes mushy, add cleaned shrimp and stir it.

This is the right time to add enough salt based on our taste.

Keep fry it for 2 to 3 minutes. Then add a 1 cup of water, cook the shrimp for 10 minutes.

Now tasty Shrimp curry is ready to serve with favorite main course.
