Valentines day special Shrimp 65

Guy's you might wonder why am I posting my Valentines day recipe now, although it's been a while and we all even forgot how we celebrated it! I know, but I have an answer and the answer is that I have already started my research now and I am working in two fields one is Thesis and the other is a special topic that I am interested in. I was always fascinated by cancer research this is what I wanted to do my entire life. I was looking for an opportunity and you know what it knocked my door, but in a wrong time because I already stared my thesis on the other topic. And I also do not want to loose this opportunity so, I accepted it. Now my days including weekends are loaded with work. I love it, I love to be busy always but I love only when the experiment works, and last weak our experiment flopped!! :( I cross my fingers and hope that it works this time!

Now coming to the recipe and todays recipe is "Shrimp-65", sounds great isn't it!
My hubby is a big fan of chicken 65, I always used to make this on the special occasions in my house, and this time I made it for the Valentines day. But, this time I wanted to try different and you are right I did it with small shrimp. It came out really wonderful, my hubby never enjoy shrimp but he liked it so badly that he asked me to make it daily!!!! :)

I used the frozen small shrimp that was available at Kroger as "Cocktail small shrimp" in the frozen section. You can also find it at wal-mart and other super markets, and you are always welcome to use a fresh shrimp.


Shrimp small-40 in number
Pepper powder-1/4tbsp
red chili powder-1/2tbsp
salt to taste (Remember this shrimp already has some salt in it)
corn flour (corn starch)-1/2tbsp
Fresh ginger-garlic paste-1/2tbsp
oil for deep fry
cumin seeds-/14 tbsp
cumin powder-1/2tbsp
coriander powder-1/2tbsp
garam masala-1/2tbsp
Green chili-2  sliced along length wise
Curry leaves few
Freshly grated ginger
Freshly grated garlic
red color (optional)


If you are using a frozen shrimp like me thaw it first under the cool running water for 2min and remove the tails (the scales on the tail were attached for the shrimp that I bought so, I have to remove them before use, if your shrimp do not have any  scales then you can directly use them).

Blot the shrimp on paper towel to remove any excess water, and add the shrimp to a large mixing bowl. ADD in cumin powder, coriander powder, salt, cum,in seeds, red chili powder, pepper powder, corn flour, ginger-garlic paste and garam masala. Mix all the ingredients well, then add egg and mix well. Now this mixture is ready to deep fry.

Heat oil enough for a deep fry in a pan and under the medium flame fry 10 shrimp's at a time, and fry them till they turn golden brown. Repeat for all the remaining shrimps. Take this shrimp on to a paper towel to remove any excess oil. If you use lot of shrimp at a time to deep fry it may not come out good and you may be left with an undercooked shrimp or it may take a long time to fry.

once you are done deep frying them, heat 1tbsp of oil in a pan and add fresh grated ginger, garlic saute till raw smell starts to disappear and add in green chili, pinch of red color and curry leaves and now you can adjust salt or chili powder to your taste (I did not add it to my shrimp as they came out perfect). Dump in all shrimp and mix well. Serve hot with chat masala or enjoy with a hot steamed rice.
