Shrimp in Spicy Tomato Sauce

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Films: Shakespeare Wallah & The Namesake
Cuisine: Indian

This dish was fantastic, although it did push my limits with its spice. The sauce is a simple tomato, onion, garlic base, seasoned with mustard seeds, dried chili flakes, ginger root, jalapenos, corriander, turmeric, paprika, and cayenne pepper, laced with lots of fresh lemon juice just before serving.

The recipe will be posted at the end of the month along with my Shakeapeare Wallah and The Namesake film reviews.
