  3. Add bell peppers with some salt. Saute until bell peppers are starting to turn tender, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Add shrimp and saute for 1 minute more.
  5. Add Indian Butter Curry Sauce and peas. Bring sauce to a simmer and simmer until shrimp is cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes more.

Loved this and the butter chicken it depends on. Great sauce! Both kids enjoyed it too.

I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would at first. I agree that it was a very easy meal given the pre-made sauce. I didn't have any peas, so I had to use some spinach, but that seemed fine to me.

So good! Really fast and yummy when the sauce is already made. The peas really added to the consistency.

This was not a hit with the kids, I thought it was pretty good, and the husband really liked it. I do like how easily it came together, with the sauce having been made earlier. We added tomatoes and onions to our pizzas, since it just seemed to plain otherwise. I think having a protein on it would have been nice and I love veggie meals.

Excellent. I suggest brushing the naan base with some oil to prevent the sauce from making it soggy. Sprinkle some fresh curry powder on top before putting it in the oven. Quick-pickled onions thrown on before serving kick this up a notch, if you’re into that.
