My dear friend S had given me her 10 year old collection of recipes from magazine,books and tv shows.For the past few weeks i have been trying the recipes from her collection.This is the first one i am posting.This was adapted from the book , "5 star samaiyal".When i saw the recipe, i thought this is unusual combo, dals and shrimps.I am glad i tried this one.Came out really well.


Coriander leaves - 1/4 bunch
Small shrimp - 1 packet (brand name : sea snack)
Channa dal - 1tbsp
Urad dal - 1 tbsp
Toor dal - 1 tbsp
Whole Pepper - 1 tsp
Red chillies - 5
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Salt - as needed
Oil - 2tbsp


Marinate shrimp in lime juice and some salt for atleast 15 minutes.Dry roast and grind toor dal,urad dal,channa dal,red chillies,peppercorns and half of coriander leaves into a fine powder.Mix this with shrimps.In a pan, heat oil and fry the shrimp mixture.Fry till everything comes together well.Add rest of the chopped coriander leaves and mix well.

Hi, this is a very nice recipe. I love the fact that dal is used as a base. I usually fry shrimps with just the lime, salt, turmeric, ginger-garlic-green chilly paste, red chilly powder. Will try this next time for sure! Thanks:-)
