30 large shelled and deveined shrimp (with tail left on)
1 tsp of fresh ginger-garlic-paste or 1 large clove of garlic grated and 1/2 inch of ginger grated
1 tsp of garam masala powder
1/2 tsp of paprika
1/4 tsp red chili powder or cayenne powder (to taste)
1/4 tsp of turmeric
salt to taste
2 tsp of canola oil
Clean shrimp by removing the shell and the vein down the back. Keep the tail intact. Then marinate shrimp with spices, salt, ginger and garlic for 10 minutes.
Note: If you are using frozen shrimp you can thaw it in the fridge overnight or for quick thawing place in a colander and allow cold water to run over it for a few minutes.
Heat a large frying pan with 2 tsp of canola oil on medium heat. Once oil is heated add shrimp. Do not over crowd the pan. You will have to fry it in two or three batches. Cook on both sides for 2-3 minutes. Allow shrimp to drain on a paper towel before serving. If your shrimp is not salted enough, sprinkle a little salt now while they are still hot. Serve hot or warm. Enjoy.
