Its really easy and I think that you can pretty much add any seasoning you like if you do not like the Indian spices I have mentioned. Also, adjust the quantities to your taste.

Wow--this is Fabulous! and so easy! And the sauce is a gorgeous chrome yellow and the texture of the shrimp is lovely and firm. I had this over rice--might add some sliced scallion or asparagus next time---it's a really excellent dish. Sana, I'm SO glad I adopted you!
