Shrimp fry Indian style

Shrimp (Frozen/ fresh)------25-30 in num.
vegetable oil----------------3ts
cumin seeds----------------few
ginger-garlic paste-----------1ts
onions chopped-------------2cups
coconut powder------------2ts
chilly powder----------------1/2ts
salt-------------------------to taste
cumin powder--------------1/2ts
coriander powder----------1/2ts
garam masala---------------1/4ts(if u wish to be spicy)
cilantro chopped--------------------2ts


  1. Shrimp/ Prawns are cooked in the similar way there is no much difference in both of them. you can follow the same procedure for prawns. 
  2. I used the cocktail large frozen shrimps. First thaw the shrimp in the cool running water for about 10min.
  3. Remove the tails and wash the shrimps and keep it aside.
  4. Take a thick bottom non stick pan heat it add 3ts of vegetable oil preferably olive oil tastes better.
  5. when the oil is hot add cumin seeds and allow it to splutter, add onions to this.
  6. when the onions are 1/4th cooked add shrimps and cook it. 
  7. Shrimps will get cooked very soon, they should be cooked under medium flame in a closed pan.
  8. shrimp will leave water out and shrink to the half of its original size. Continue cooking until the water in completely evaporates out and curry becomes dry.
  9. Now add chili powder, ginger garlic paste,cumin powder, coconut powder, coriander powder turmeric, salt (very little as shrimp already contains salt). cook it for 3-4min.
  10. Now add garam masala if you want your dish to be spicy.
  11. Finally garnish it with cilantro and your dish is ready to serve.

The reason for not adding turmeric and gingergarlic paste while cooking onions is for saving color of turmeric and taste of ginger and garlic. Generally many prefer adding them at that point, however I want to save the taste of ginger-garlic in my dish.
Tastes delicious when served with roti/chapati and goes well with rice. If you like my dish plz rate it and follow my blog.thnq

IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

Morning while talking  to my hubby, I was adding water into over night fermented Idli batter, while talking I didn't realize how much water I'm adding.

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack. I love self rising flour and its uses, I had already posted pan cakes and cake with self rising flour. It is very easy to use and yields very fruitful results.
Now coming to recipe

Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
