I love this recipe! I was worried about adding yogurt, so I divided the masala in 2 parts and made shrimp with n without yogurt. Both turned out great! Now everytime I make shrimp, I make two batches of shrimp - fry (without yogurt) and curry (with yogurt)


This was one of the most delicious recipe. Looking forward to more such recipes.
