Spicy Shrimp Fry

Last night, we had a sudden craving for shrimp fry and dint want to do any deep frying...
The solution : bring in the onions 
And the result : on your left :) 

Shrimp is something that was consumed very scarcely at home...they are known to boost allergies... Even today we are very mindful of the quantity of shrimp we consume. 

Shrimp - quarter pound
Onion - 1/2 cup thinly sliced
Garlic - 1 tsp minced
Ginger - 1 tsp minced
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 pinch
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp

Clean and drain the shrimp and keep aside. Heat oil in a pan. Add onion and stir well. When onion is translucent add ginger and garlic. Saute till light brown. Reduce flame to medium low. Add all three powders followed by garam masala. Mix well for a minute and add shrimp. Take care not to add water. Add salt , mix well and cover the pan. Reduce flame to the lowest and let it cook for 10-15 mins. Stir occasionally. Stop when shrimp is cooked. Serve with sliced lemon and squeeze them over as you eat.
Works great as a bar appetizer. Equally great with rice and yogurt...

If you add water to cook the shrimp or if you add cooked shrimp to the onion mix, the taste of end product is going to be entirely different. I would recommend the no water cooking method :)
