brewing at Pragyan’s: Nadiya Rasa dia Chingudi Tarkari (Shrimp in Coconut Milk Gravy)
Shrimp (Chingudi in Odiya, peeled and deveined) – about 30-40
Salt – 1 tbsp
Turmeric – 1 tbsp
Chilli Powder – 1 tsp
Marinate the Shrimp with the above spices for atleast 30 minutes. Relying on temperature exterior, you possibly can hold it again within the fridge after coating it effectively. Cowl it with a seal-wrap.
Take a flat heavy-bottomed pan.
Warmth 2-Three tbsp Canola Oil in Medium warmth.
Because it warms up, add the Shrimp in a layer and let it half-cook on one facet. You’ll get an attractive Orange shade. Flip it over and let it cook dinner the opposite facet. You need not absolutely cook dinner it since it’s going to additionally cook dinner within the curry later. Relying on pan measurement, you’ll by no means to shallow fry the Shrimps in a number of batches. To allow you to in on a secret, I generally absolutely cook dinner a number of of those infants and have them as-is. They style superior! Ah, if they’re the recent Prawns of Odisha, I am unable to think about you not doing this… 🙂
Maintain them apart. You need not place them on paper towel since it’s tasty so as to add the oil again to the curry later.
I take advantage of my common Onion/Tomato/Inexperienced Chilli/Ginger/Garlic curry paste to organize this. It’s roughly 2-Three Medium Onions, 2-Three Medium Tomatoes, 2-Three Inexperienced Chillies, 1 inch Ginger, 6-7 Garlic Cloves with as little water as doable.
No want to scrub the pan used for frying the Shrimp. I reuse the identical pan so as to not lose out on any of the flavors – that’s the reason it’s a good suggestion to make use of an acceptable dish once you begin frying, one thing that may maintain the curry whereas brewing.
Warmth 1 tbsp Canola Oil or lesser if the pan nonetheless has some oil from the above shallow frying course of.
Add 2-Three dry Bay leaves, 2-Three dry Purple Chillies, 1-2 Cinnamon stick and half tsp Cumin Seeds.
Because the above entire spices sizzle, add the bottom paste of Onion/Tomato/Inexperienced Chilli/Ginger/Garlic.
Because the curry paste is half-cooked, add a little bit extra oil if required. I attempt to add a touch of water as an alternative and it often helps proceed the brewing course of with out burning the curry paste and with out the necessity for the added oil.
Add Four-5 tsp of Curry Powder, 1 tsp of Coriander Powder and 1 tsp of Garam Masala.
Including a touch of Paprika Powder offers it a brilliant shade.
10 minutes earlier than you cease brewing, add half to 1 cup of Coconut Milk (I take advantage of canned ones and that is known as Nadia Rasa and thus, the title) and blend effectively. The colour is additional enhanced with the addition of the Coconut Milk which supplies it a pleasant golden shade.
Take pleasure in with RiceRotiNaan anyday!
