    I tried the recipe with the precise quantity of spices as suggested by Hena but did not add the vegetables. As shrimp are sweet when cooked, I added 2extra teaspoons of chilli powder, this made the curry nice and hot. My friends liked the curry and asked me for the recipe which I gladly gave and suggested that go on to this site for more of great tasting recipes. Thanks Hena and thank you Khana Khazana for this wonderful recipe. Best Wishes Purnima Rao
