Hawaiian Shrimp Curry

Hawaiian Shrimp Curry

This is a very common dish in Hawaii, because of the ready availability of fresh shrimps from the oceans. This Curry is an absolute treat. I choose to prepare this curry very often as shrimps are equally good and fresh here in India. The ingredients used in this recipe are also easily available allover India.  This curry can be eaten with rice. So it's a dish which can suit Indian taste very well.

Preparation time  : 15 minutes
Cooking time       : 30 minutes
Difficulty              : Easy
Serves                  :  6

Ingredients :

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 5 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Method :

1) In a skillet heat butter over medium high flame. Take care that the butter does not burn.

2) Add the onions once the butter has melted, saute onion in butter.

3) Half way through, stir in flour, curry powder, sugar, garlic, and ginger.

4) Cover and cook for 15 minutes on very low heat. Keep stirring n between and sprinkle water to keep the spices from burning or sticking to the pan.

5) Once the spices start releasing oil from sides, stir in broth and coconut milk.

6) Cover and cook 15 more minutes. Do not let sauce boil. The milk tends to split when boiled.

7) Meanwhile, wash, clean and devein the shrimps and saute them in a separate pan in 1 teaspoon of butter for 2 - 3 minutes, till they become translucent. Remove and keep aside.

8) Add salt and shrimp to the sauce, mix well and heat thoroughly. Check the seasonings and adjust if necessary. 

9) Your Curry is ready to be served with rice and any or all of the following condiments:

Chopped peanuts
Chopped green onions
