Shrimp in Pomegranite Curry

What a rude awakening to come home from holiday and have to cook again!! Well lucky for me, my parents often invite me over for dinner.

My dad made this recipe the other night and it was delicious!! It is from Vij's cookbook called- Vij's at home. My dad loves Vij!  The recipe calls for pomegranite juice which he did not have, so he substituted for mango juice. We ate it over brown rice, and let me tell you, there wasn't a spoonfull left at the end of dinner. We devoured it. It was a bit spicy, but not to the extent where you can't taste and savour the flavours. yum!!!

36-42 shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 ½ tsp salt
½ cup ghee or cooking oil
1 Tbsp cumin seeds
1 ½ cups finely chopped red onion
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp ground cayenne or black pepper
1 tsp chopped jalapeno
1 Tbsp finely chopped ginger
½ cup pomegranate juice (or mango)
½ cup chopped cilantro

In a large frying pan, heat ghee (or oil) on medium heat for 1 minute.  Add onions and saute for 8 minutes or until browned with darker edges.  Reduce heat to medium and add tumeric, remaining 1 tsp of salt and cayenne (or black pepper if using).  Stir, saute for 1 minute, the add jalapeno and ginger and saute for 1 minute more.

Add pomegranate juice and bring to a boil, which should take less than 30 seconds.  Add shrimp and stir gently. Saute Shrimp – stir gently stirring- for about 4 minutes or until cooked through.  Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.
