Potato & Shrimp Fry

I'll share a quick and delicious side dish today. This tastes great with any lentil(dal) dishes or just with plain hot rice. My mom used to make this whenever we had shrimp at home.

Ingredients :
Shrimp(small or medium) : 10-12
Potato : 1(small)
Onion : 1(small)
ginger-garlic paste : 1 tsp.
Green chilli: 1/red chilli powder : 1 tsp.
Tomato : 1(small)
Turmeric powder : 1 tsp.
salt to taste
Oil : 2 tblsp.
Fresh coriander leaves for garnishing

Method :
  • Cut potatoes in small pieces. Chop onions, green chillies and tomatoes finely. Wash shrimp and rub with a pinch of salt and turmeric. Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  • Heat whole oil in a pan, fry the shrimps until light brown(about 2-3 min. on each sides) on both sides. Do not over fry shrimp. It will get hard and won't taste good. Keep aside. Cut in small pieces.
  • In the same oil, fry potatoes till tender. Keep aside and in the same oil, add onions and fry till soft, add green chillies(if using) and ginger-garlic paste, saute for a while, then add tomatoes. Stir fry for another minute or two. Now it's time to add shrimp and potatoes.
  • Add a pinch of turmeric, red chilli powder(if using) and salt to taste. Stir and mix everything together. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
Serve definitely hot, otherwise it won't taste the same.
