Very good. I loved the taste. I usually make Thai with this much coconut milk. Only con is that texture was a bit thick. And high cholesterol too.

For marinating I added 4x of chilly turmeric powders.. I didn t had coriander powder. Instead of adding shrimp right after putting mustard seeds, I added onions cooked it abt half way thru and added green chillies and added 2 mid size tomatoes and sauted it till it was soft juicy. I added shrimp after that. It came out real good and had a different flavor. Thanks so much for the recipe !
