Deviled Shrimps

This is my favourite seafood.I love it when it is cooked with  onions and chilly.Usually I get them cleaned at the market where we purchase.This time I had to do all the deveining and cleaning  all by myself.I cut both ends of the shrimps and applied a tablespoon of turmeric powder on the fresh shrimps and washed them well.I trimmed both the ends of the shrimps  as my children find it  appetizing  without them.

                                                           - A kilo of Shrimps-
In a little oil,I fried a few cloves of crushed garlic and ginger.Then I sauteed the shrimps.While still cooking,I mixed in a teaspoon of cummin seeds and  2-3 teaspoons of chilly powder and continued cooking till it changed colour.Then I added  a tablespoon of tomato paste,salt to taste and the juice of one lemon.

While it was still sizzling in the pan ,I threw in a few sliced green bell peppers ,a sliced onion and one chopped tomato.Finally I drizzled dashes of soya sauce and let it simmer for a while.

 This is a meal in a jiffy.You can serve it with rice,toast bread or chappatis: flat bread. 

                                                          Bon Appetit! My Friends...
