  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil or clarified butter (ghee)
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 tablespoons grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon grated garlic
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 20 medium-to-large shrimp
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooked rice for serving



Step 1

1. In a heavy pot such as a dutch oven, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook gently until golden, about 20 minutes, then add the ginger, garlic, tomato paste, chili powder, and garam masala. Add a little oil if necessary to allow the ingredients to blend into a thick-yet-runny consistency, and cook until the flavors have begun to marry and are very fragrant, 3-4 minutes.

2. Add the water and stir until the mixture is smooth, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and cook gently over medium heat until they are just cooked through, about 4 minutes.

3. Remove from the heat and stir in the yogurt quickly. Serve immediately with rice.
