Spicy Shrimps with Okra Recipes

Ingredients :

4-6 tbsp oil

8 oz okra, washed, dried and left whole

4 garlic cloves, crushed

2 inch piece of fresh root ginger, chopped

4-6 green chilies, cut diagonally

1/2 tsp turmeric

4-6 curry leaves

1 tsp cumin seeds

1lb fresh king shrimps, peeled and deveined

2 tsp brown sugar

juice of 2 lemon

salt, to taste

Method :

Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the okra on a fairly high heat until they are slightly crisp and browned on all sides. Remove from the oil and keep aside on a piece of kitchen paper.

In the same oil, gently fry the garlic, ginger, chilies, turmeric, curry leaves and cumin seeds for 2-3 minutes. Add the shrimps and mix well. Cook until the shrimps are tender.

Add the salt, sugar, lemon juice and fried okra. Increase the heat and quickly fry for a further 5 minutes, stirring gently to prevent the okra from breaking. Adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Serve hot.

Serves 4-6

Okra should be cooked rapidly to prevent the pods from breaking up and releasing their distinctive thick, sticky liquid.
