Shrimps in Green Gravy - Yummilicious!

Hi ya all!


How have you been?? I tried this Shrimp Recipe today. Its amongst my mom's specialties. Now, my mom is a VERY VERY VERY Good Cook!! I mean she's AMAZING!! People who taste her food ALWAYS come back for more! So, as I was saying, I got this recipe from my mom.


Ingredients:


Onions: 2 (Big)
Garlic: 12 Cloves + 3 Cloves
Coriander leaves: About 3/4 Cup (Chopped)
Green Chillies: 3 (You can increase or decrease it according to your taste and your 'Hot' Meter)
Shrimps: 350-400 grams (Washed, De-shelled and Deveined)
Turmeric Powder: 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt: To Taste
Water
Oil
Lemon Wedges and Coriander Leaves for Garnishing
Method: 


1) Grind the Onions, 12 Garlic cloves, Coriander leaves and Green chillies to a fine paste.
2) Marinate the Shrimps in Turmeric Powder and some salt for about 10-15 Minutes.
3) In the meantime, heat some oil in a cooking pot and add Onion-Garlic-Coriander-Chilly paste. Saute it over low heat. Keep stirring so that the paste doesn't stick to the pot. Add a few drops of oil now and then if needed. Now, when you cook this paste, the chillies in the mixture lose some of their spiciness. Saute this mixture on a low flame for about 10 minutes or till the raw taste of the paste disappears. Keep stirring while you saute it.
4) Now, add the Shrimps in the cooking pot. Slice 3 Garlic Cloves and add it to the shrimps. Add 3-4 tablespoons of water and Stir well. (Add some more water if you want a thin gravy). Cover the pot and cook over a medium flame.
5) Stir from time to time so that it doesn't stick to the pot. Add some water now and then if required.
6) It usually takes 15 minutes to cook the shrimps but you can always check and if they still seema a little raw, you can cook them for some more time.
7) Garnish them with Lemon Wedges and Coriander Leaves.


I hope you try this recipe and I really hope you all like it.


P.S: I served the dish in a Traditional Indian 'Patela' (Indian Aluminium Pot)
