Reply sj October 7, 2007 - 12:00 amIt is ok… not that great…masalas are less… Reply Santhi June 26, 2009 - 1:00 pm Nice Recipe. But needs to be some more spicy .Hence I added more chilly powder and Coriander powder at last. Thankyou Milan.. Do put more recipes. Reply MP February 16, 2010 - 7:40 pmVery good. I loved the taste. I usually make Thai with this much coconut milk. Only con is that texture was a bit thick. And high cholesterol too.

Reply Rehana Aji August 2, 2013 - 4:34 pm For marinating I added 4x of chilly turmeric powders.. I didn t had coriander powder. Instead of adding shrimp right after putting mustard seeds, I added onions cooked it abt half way thru and added green chillies and added 2 mid size tomatoes and sauted it till it was soft juicy. I added shrimp after that. It came out real good and had a different flavor. Thanks so much for the recipe ! Reply Vinod July 18, 2007 - 12:00 amThis was an excellent one!
