Spicy Shrimp roast

I learned this recipe from my cousin Madhu, when she visited us recently. On that day I wanted to make something special for both of us after giving hubby his lunch box. After talking some family stories, we both rushed to the kitchen exactly at the lunch time and then I wanted some quick side dish for our chicken briyani:) Then I asked her for a simple and quick recipe for shrimp. She shared with me her mom's (my S athai's) eral varuval recipe and I absolutely love it. I could make that spicy shrimp fry within 20 minutes and we both had a delicious lunch with this fry and chicken briyani:)
Thanks Madhu, now I know 'how to make a quick delicious shrimp fry' !



Era varuval / roasted prawn.

Ingredients:
Large Raw shrimp - 15
oil - 2 tbsp
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
red chilly powder - 1 tsp
coriander powder - 3 tbsp
curry masala powder - 1/2 tsp

Method:
Peel and devein the shrimp.
Mix all the powders and salts mentioned above. Let it sit for 10 minutes.

Note:
Serve as side dish with any rice or chapati.
Sometimes I add lemon juice also while marinating.
Curry leaves and fennel seeds (sombu) can also be added while frying the shrimp.
