  1. Marinate shrimp with little salt, lemon juice and turmeric powder and keep it aside.
  2. Finely chop the onions and garlic.
  3. Heat oil in a kadai and fry the red chillies.
  4. When the red chillies turn dark red, strain then from oil and put them on a paper towel to absorb all the oil.
  5. Make the red chillies into flakes by crushing them. Keep this aside.
  6. Add onions, garlic and curry leaves to the oil that you fried the red chillies.
  7. When the onions are translucent, add the marinated shrimp and salt to taste.
  8. Cover and cook the shrimp till the oil starts to come on the sides.
  9. Add crushed red chillies to the shrimps.
  10. :- It is a good side dish with chappathi and rice.
  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.
  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.
