Excellent flavor and consistancy! I had some leftover shrimp from a cookout we had, and so I gave this a try. I modified the recipe a little according to what I had on hand, so your milage with this recipe may vary.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Shell and de-vein the shrimp; rinse well, pat dry, and set aside.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter; saute the onion for about 7 minutes.
  3. Add the red chile pepper and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  4. Add the shrimp, then season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  5. Cook, stirring often, about three minutes.
  6. Add the cardamom (1/2 tsp ground) and cumin and stir, then add the lime juice, sour cream, and yoghurt.
  7. Bring to a gentle boil, stirring, then remove from heat (you don't want to overcook the shrimp).
  8. Serve immediately, sprinkled with chopped coriander, with saffron rice.
