Shrimps -- Stir Fry with Capsicum

Vegans, try this recipe with Cauliflower. 
I made this recipe with small Shrimps. It came out well. But my Hus said this would have been a much more mouth watering recipe if bigger Shrimps are used. I do feel the same as when small ones are fried they shrinked much.


Shrimps 400g
Chopped Capsicum ¼cup
Chilli Sauce 1 tsp
Soya Sauce 2 tbsp
Tomato Sauce 3-4 tbsp
Finely chopped Ginger and Garlic 1tsp each

For the batter:

Chilli Powder  ¾ tsp
Paprika Powder ¼tsp

Corn Flour 1 ½ tsp

Maida 1 ½ tsp

Vinegar as required


Form a thick batter with the ingredients listed under "For the Batter" . Add Salt and shrimps. Mix well and keep it aside for 10 minutes.

Cut Capsicum into thin strips. Chop Ginger and Garlic into very fine pieces.


Deep fry the Shrimps and keep it aside in an absorbent Paper.

Heat Oil in a Pan. Add chopped Garlic and Ginger. Few seconds later when they turn slightly brown, add the Capsicum, Salt and all the Sauces.

Stir well and cook. When it is almost done, add the fried shrimps. Stir and cook for five more minutes.

Serves: 2
Serve as sidedish to Fried Rice or Biryani.

Notes: Red and Yellow Capsicum can also be used which would make the recipe much more colorful.
