Shrimp/Chemmeen thoran

hi all, this dish i made few weeks back but didn't have energy or time to post it.Now a days started feeling little better, so thought of posting all which was on hold..:)).So here is the first one..


Shrimp - 15- 20 (jumbo)(chopped)
Coconut oil - 2tsp
Mustard seeds -1tsp
Urad dal -1/2tsp
Curry leaves - as needed

Grind to coarse paste

Coconut - 1/2 cup ( shredded)
Small onion - 1
Green chillies - 5
Ginger - 1 inch (chopped fine)
Garlic - 2 pods (Chopped fine)
Turmeric powder -1/4tsp


In a pan heat coconut oil, and splutter mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves.Add the grounded paste and fry till raw smell goes.Add shrimp and salt and cook in medium heat until it is cooked well and is very dry.If you are using small shrimps, then no need to chop them.

Hi Mahi,

shrimps covered in the crispy stuff, that looks so amazing. I bookmarked it, that one needs to be prepared soon. What do you have it with, rice ?

Hi Maheshwari

All who know me, know that I am a die-hard fan of Chemeen!! I actually get emotional about Chemeen, I love it that much. I have had various varieties of it, but I have never seen this toran style.

I will definitely give it a try the next I get the frozen packet (in Delhi you rarely find really fresh one, which is quite unfortunate).

Thanks for the recipe.

I am new on the blog world & please do visit my blog at the link given.
