Sarse Narkel Chingri :::
Mixed Vegetables fry with salad shrimp :::
one small packet of salad shrimp,
one small onion,finely chopped,
4-5 green chillies,slit lengthwise,
a handful of diced fresh vegetables of your choice,
1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder,
1 dry whole red chilli,
1 tsp turmeric powder,
a pinch of sugar for caramelizing,
salt as per your taste,
oil to fry.
1. First wash all the vegetables and salad shrimp separately.If frozen,soak in warm water for sometime.
2. Marinate shrimps with turmeric powder and salt and they fry in one spoon oil.Strain from oil and keep aside.
3.Heat sufficient oil in a wok / kadai, add a pinch of sugar and when melts add chopped onion and green chillies and saute for some time until onions started changing color.
4.Add all the vegetables and sprinkle turmeric powder and salt and stir nicely over high flame for 2-3mins and then cover the kadai and let it cook for some time and when almost done ,add fried shrimp and mix thoroughly and then sprinkle roasted cumin powder.When done,serve hot with plain lentils soup and hot plain rice.
Here I used potatoes, pumpkins,ridge-gourd and Chinese brinjal/eggplant and these vegetables go well too.Sprinkle water whenever needed to avoid sticking the vegetables at the bottom of the wok / kadai. If you want, you can use fresh coriander leaves for garnishing and garam masala too.
