Chemmeen Ularthiyathu /Shrimp Fry - Kerala special

This recipe is usually made with "kodam puli".Since i didn't have it, i used vinegar instead.Recipe adapted from Mrs.K M Mathew's book.


Shrimps - 30-35 (medium sized)
Small onions - 15 (sliced lengthwise)
Big onion - 1/4 cup (sliced)
Ginger - 1 inch (sliced lengthwise)
Garlic - 4 cloves (sliced lengthwise)
Chilli powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coconut slices - 1/4 cup
Vinegar - 2 tsp
Salt - as needed
Curry leaves - as needed
Oil - 2 tbsp


Mix shrimp,ginger,garlic,small onions,chilli powder,coriander powder,turmeric powder,coconut slices,salt,vinegar and curryleaves.Cook this with just enough water in medium low flame until shrimp is cooked and sauce is almost dry.In a pan, heat oil and fry big onion til it is almost dark brown in color.Add the shrimp masla into this and fry till oil separates and the dish is almost dry.Serve with rice.
