We picked up these awesome cherry tomatoes from a nearby farm. They are just too good. Even though I am not a fan of eating raw tomatoes, I just could not stop eating them.. Too good.. :)

Ingredients:

1. Shrimp - 1 lb
2. Cherry tomatoes - A handful, halved
3. Ginger - 1 inch piece, grated
4. Garlic - 3-4 cloves, finely chopped
5. Onion - 1 big, chopped lengthwise
6. Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
7. Turmeric powder - 1/2 + 1/4 tsp
8. Red Chilli powder - 1/2 + 1/2 tsp
9. Garam masala powder - 1/4 tsp + 1/4 tsp
10. Black pepper powder - 1/2 + 1/2 tsp
11. Oil (preferrably virgin coconut oil) - For shallow frying + 2 tbsp for roasting
12. Salt - As desired
13. Curry leaves - 1 sprig
14. Green chillies - 3-4, chopped

Preparation:

1, Marinate the shrimp with lemon juice, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp red chilli powder, 1/4 tsp garam masala and 1/2 tsp black pepper powder and salt in the refrigerator for 4-5 hours or overnight.
2. Heat enough oil in a heavy bottom pan for shallow frying. Fry the shrimp (About 2 mins on each side should suffice) and keep aside on a paper towel to drain out excess oil.
3. Heat another pan. Add 2 tbsp oil. Add the chopped ginger and garlic.
4. When the raw smell goes away, add the chopped onion. Saute until it gets lightly browned.
5. Add the remaining turmeric powder, red chilli powder, garam masala and black pepper powder.
6. Mix well until the spices are roasted.
7. Add the tomatoes and mix for a few minutes.
8. Add the shrimp, mix, add a few teaspoons of water if necessary, cover and cook for 5 minutes.
9. Add the chopped green chillies, curry leaves, mix and remove from heat.

Enjoy! :D
