Step 1

Marinate shrimp with little salt, lemon juice and turmeric powder and keep it aside.

Step 2

Finely chop the onions and garlic.

Step 3

Heat oil in a kadai and fry the red chillies.

Step 4

When the red chillies turn dark red, strain then from oil and put them on a paper towel to absorb all the oil.

Step 5

Make the red chillies into flakes by crushing them. Keep this aside.

Step 6

Add onions, garlic and curry leaves to the oil that you fried the red chillies.

Step 7

When the onions are translucent, add the marinated shrimp and salt to taste.

Step 8

Cover and cook the shrimp till the oil starts to come on the sides.

Step 9

Add crushed red chillies to the shrimps.

Step 10

:- It is a good side dish with chappathi and rice.

Step 11

Tips:- If the shrimp seems to be too dry and becomes hard, add a little water and cook it on medium heat until all the water is drained and the oil comes on the sides.

Step 12

:- Another tip is you can add little bit more lemon juice in the marinade to make it more juicer.
Add more red chillies if you need it very spicy. I prepare this crushed red chillies a lot at one time and keep it in the refrigerator.
