How to make it

  • Sprinkle shrimp with salt and turmeric. Toss well to coat; cover and set aside for 15 minutes.
  • Combine mustard, cumin, garlic, ginger, chiles and lemon juice in a blender and puree. Set aside.
  • Saute onions in oil until soft, about 3 minutes. Add pureed spice mixture and cook, stirring for about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cook until soft. Add shrimp, stir gently to coat them evenly.
  • Pour in the water and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook until shrimp are just opaque, about 5 minutes.
  • Serve curry over rice.
  • Note: This dish was popular with the Bengal Lancers Regimental Mess around the turn of the 20st century. (Dish called Jhinka Masala)
