Cook an amazing supper with insignificant fixings with our Shrimp Curry formula. A coconut curry sauce made with insignificant fixings stews around delicate shrimp makes for an unbelievable supper. You'll be amazed at how GOOD this is!
What is the secret to a good curry?
Fixings! The right blend of flavors and aromatics are vital for a decent curry sauce. Garlic, ginger and onion get the flavors going in the correct course, while garam masala, ground cumin, Tumeric and ground coriander give you the overpowering curry flavor.
Having said that, they CAN be supplanted with a gentle curry powder that might be hanging out at the rear of your kitchen storeroom, however the flavors may not be something similar. I love having the option to control the kinds of flavors to get them totally ideal for the sauce.
The best shrimp curry sauce utilizes a blend of squashed tomatoes (or Passata) and coconut milk or cream. You can substitute with weighty cream, thickened cream or dissipated milk in the event that you don't have coconut!
