  • Marinate shrimp with little salt, lemon juice and turmeric powder and keep it aside.
  • Finely chop the onions and garlic.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and fry the red chillies.
  • When the red chillies turn dark red, strain then from oil and put them on a paper towel to absorb all the oil.
  • Make the red chillies into flakes by crushing them. Keep this aside.
  • Add onions, garlic and curry leaves to the oil that you fried the red chillies.
  • When the onions are translucent, add the marinated shrimp and salt to taste.
  • Cover and cook the shrimp till the oil starts to come on the sides.
  • Add crushed red chillies to the shrimps.
  • :- It is a good side dish with chappathi and rice.
  • Tips:- If the shrimp seems to be too dry and becomes hard, add a little water and cook it on medium heat until all the water is drained and the oil comes on the sides.
  • :- Another tip is you can add little bit more lemon juice in the marinade to make it more juicer. Add more red chillies if you need it very spicy. I prepare this crushed red chillies a lot at one time and keep it in the refrigerator.
