Recipe Notes

  1. To get rid of any smell wash the shrimps with whole wheat flour before cooking. Sprinkle aata (whole wheat flour) generously on raw shrimps. Keep aside for 10-15 minutes. Wash off thoroughly before cooking.
  2. Mix all dry spices and keep other ingredients also handy before starting to cook so that they can be added quickly as shrimps turn rubbery if overcooked.
