We absolutely loved this, a real treat!! I didn't make any significant changes, like previous reviewers I had to use a regular onion, not realising that I had run out of green, and I did add a bit of white wine to create a bit of sauce, but I think that these did not significantly alter the dish. Definitely a make-again!!! Thank you awalde, lovely recipe, made for PRMR tag game.

This was absolutely delicous,the garam masala is great with the shrimp. It was a little sweet from the tomato with the nice contrast of a little spicey warmth. I was concerned that the chili would be too hot for our tastes so I used a little bit red pepper flakes (about 1/8 tsp), after simmering I thought it needed more spice so added several dashes of hot sauces and some fresh ground pepper - just right for us. I also subbed sour cream and heavy cream for the creme fraiche. In reviewing the recipe before rating I realized that I misread it and should have used tomato puree and not paste. This explains why it wasn't very saucey : ), I ended up adding extra cream using about 1/2 cup total. This is a dish that would be great for a dinner party. I served it with jasmine rice, Trader Joe's garlic naan and green beans. Thanks awalde for sharing your recipe! Made for PRMRT

We loved this recipe! My only change was to use a small diced onion in place of the green onions, as I used the last of my green onions last night without realising! Oh, and I garnished it with some extra sliced red chillies. A wonderful recipe, we really enjoyed it! [Made for PRMR]

Great recipe, we really enjoyed it - I did add a teaspoon of Sambal Oelek (chilli paste) as the chilli I used was not as hot as it should have been, I served it on a bed of white rice and it was delicious, thanks so much for posting

What a treat. It took me a little while to find the large shrimp (15/16 size) in my remote area but this was sure worth the wait. I made the garam marsala fresh this morning and I wish that I could always make the spice blends fresh for each recipe. I made it right by the recipe and it turned out to be perfectly amazing. What an outstanding flavor combination this is. I served it with brown rice and a cold salad. Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe awalde. :D

We enjoyed the flavours which packed a nice punch without going overboard. but we did have to add about 1/2 cup dry white wine to create a sauce. I used 1K of prawns (22 prawns and this was pre-peeled weight) and it served the 3 of us nicely with rice and some steamed greens. Thank you awalde, made for All You Can Cook Buffet tag game special.
