Bombay Shrimp Saute

with basmati rice

Active: 35 min | Total:

Indian spices bring this simple saute of veggies and shrimp (or chickpeas) to life. While it's not a 'cool' summer dish, sometimes a little heat is just what we need on hot days.
Smarts: A light nuke of veggies like carrots makes the cooking process a lot faster.

from Kaley for the original version
Comment: "What just happened in my house? My six year olds ate this and said it was good. This was an adventurous meal for picky kids and we are not accustomed to Indian cuisine. This would not be a go to meal for us but I would make it again if I were wanting this type of flavor. Definitely worth trying this one! My kids liked it a lot at first and then seemed to get tired of it but this was huge progress in them trying new cuisine. I was not sure I would like it and it was very good."

Comment: "I left out a few items: ginger,peas, crushed tomatoes. This meal was so flavorful and it smelled soooo good. I am making it again today but I am using chicken. I think that the shrimp is the best protein for this meal but I will find out."

Comment: "I would give this a 3.5... I'm still getting comfortable with cooking shrimp at home. For some reason, I never feel sure it's totally done. The spices were perfect for shrimp, though."

Comment: "Seemed like it needed more flavoring. I think it would have tasted better without a tomato base."

from Amber for the original version
Comment: "The sauce was too thick, so I added some milk to thin it out and make it more creamy. It made it better, but we didn't like it enough to make it again. Maybe coconut milk and a little sugar would make it better."
