  • When the onions turn golden brown, add ginger and garlic. After a minute, add the spices and tomatoes.
  • Once the tomatoes get soft, add coconut milk. Cook for five minutes then add shrimp.

Please note - you cannot replace curry leaves with curry powder - they are NOT at all the same thing.
Also, you don't have to eat the curry leaves, they just provide the dish with a ton of flavor :)
If you use cayenne instead of the Kashmiri chili, you'll want to use a little less and you'll want to add paprika for color.
