Madhur Jaffrey's Shrimp in the Maharashtrian Manner
15 mins (prep 10, cooking 5)
15 ingredients
4 servings
This recipe has served me well for many years. It is a very lovely mixture of flavors, aromas and textures and seems like it should have been much more work than it actually is. Ms. Jaffrey describes the dish as a "quick dish which you can make with prawns (shrimps) or any firm fleshed fish that can be cut into thick steaks or chunks. Serve with rice and vegetables suchas stuffed Okra, carrots with Dill and Puréed Vegetables." I have also substituted drained pressed tofu for the shrimp and it was equally but differently delicious. I have given the ingredient list in avoirdupois and skipped the metric measurements which she used in her book.
