      This recipe is delicious. It reminds of a dish I had back home in NY at my favorite Indian restaurant -- Shrimp Malai. I've missed the dish and now can make it whenever I like! I've made it with seafood, chicken and will try lamb or veal stew meat. I serve it over Jasmine rice which a perfect accompaniment. This rice is light and fluffy and soaks up the sauce. I adapted the dish by adding extra tumeric and a little less than a tablespoon of sugar...yum :-). Thank you for submitting this wonderful recipe. I've already made five copies for friends who've tried it. Thanks! And keep them coming! :-). bydzign

      If you can't find green coriander (it might be called cilantro in your area), you can use coriander powder. However, since coriander powder tends to be a bit gritty, what I do is to put a tsp in a small bowl of water and stir it around. Then let it settle to the bottom (let it sit for about 5 min) and only pour the water into your shrimp dish. Toss out the gritty spice which is at the bottom of the bowl. I hope that helps.

      Made this for dinner last night---RAVE reviews from all of us! It was very easy to prepare, and I do something a little different than what the recipe called for...after the sauce and rice were both cooked, I combined them and simmered until the sauce was absorbed by the rice, almost "risotto" style, (which took about 10 minutes)and added the cilantro after cooking. I did add about a teaspoon of curry powder too. Awesome! I will be making this again soon. Thanks for a great recipe Inez! :-) -CG
