Dry Curry Shrimps

I have not been blogging for the past one week due to attending some family matters and now I am back again to post up some of my lastest cooking and baking adventures :)
Recently , I learned to cook this dry curry shrimps from a friend. She gave pointers which were valuable in cooking this curry dish. :) It was one fantastic dish and I managed to cook it to the right consistency and the taste was extremely delicious… the combination of the curry paste with added curry leaves, lemongrass , pounded shallots and last but not least the most important ingredient, the coconut milk, has given the curry a uniqueness only the tongue can describe.

Dry Curry Shrimps


½ kg medium sized shrimps – cleaned it and leave the shell on
½ cup of fresh curry paste – from the wet market
½ cup of pounded shallots
a few sprigs of curry leaves
2 stalks of lemongrass – lightly crushed
1 cup coconut milk
¼ cup oil


Heat up oil in a wok, add in all the ingredients above except the coconut milk and the shrimps. Continue to stir fry the ingredients under small flame till the oil separates and surfaces. Slowly add in the coconut milk and keep stirring and cook till the fragrance of the curry paste has been released. Add in the shrimps and cook till the gravy has thickened and the shrimps is coated with the curry paste. Dish up and serve hot with rice.
Note: This dry curry shrimps goes well with yellow glutinous rice too.
