DIRECTIONS

  • Season shrimps with salt, pepper and a pinch of turmeric.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of veg oil to a pot, allow it to heat up on a medium flame.
  • Cover the rice with water and let it soak for 30 or so minutes.
  • Stir fry the shrimps in the hot oil and cook it for 2 minutes on each side, just to brown them.
  • Remove from oil and set aside on a plate.
  • Add the onions into the same pot with the same oil, stir untill it's a golden brown color.
  • Once the onions have browned, add the garlic and ginger.
  • Now add all the spices, except for the dried lime.
  • Once you have enhanced the spices' aromas add the limes (pierce a hole right through them) and tomatoe.
  • Allow tomatoes to wilt and lime to soften a little.
  • Add salt, stir it in.
  • Replace shrimps to the dish.
  • Drain rice and add to the dish without stirring.
  • Cover rice with water, so that there is just 2 inches of water covering the dish.
  • Raise the heat just till it boils then reduce the heat (media heat).
  • Cook for approximately 20 minutes Keep checking if the water has not evaporated before the rice has been cooked thoroughly, if necessary top up with a 1/4 cup of water.
  • Once the rice is done right,if there is still some remaining water drain it off and then serve with a side salad.
