Baby Shrimps/Drumstick leaves Stir Fry

This recipe was from my friend, Jil Jil. She does authentic Kanyakumari dishes. You can check her recipe here.

I have translated it below:

Baby Shrimps - 250 gms
Drumstick stick leaves - 1 1/2 cup
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Small sambhar onions - 15, finely chopped
Chilli powder - 1/2 tablespoon
Turmeric powder - 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tablespoon
Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves - few
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tablespoons

Boil 2 cups of water. Switch off the flame and add little salt and 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder to it.

Add baby shrimps and close it with a lid. Allow it like that for 30 minutes.

Grind grated coconut, 2 small onions, cumin seeds, a pinch of turmeric powder coarsely and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Once it is hot, add mustard seeds and allow it to splitter.

Add curry leaves, chopped onions and fry until they are golden brown.

Wash and drain baby shrimps and drumstick leaves. Add both to it and fry well for 5 minutes.

Then add the grinded coconut and salt to taste and mix well.

Cook it in low flame with a lid closed.

Stir it in intervals and allow it to cook completely.

Serve it hot with rice.

Cooking time - 30 minutes
Serves 3-4 persons
