Shrimp & Drumsticks Gravy/Eral Murungakkai Kuzhambu

This shrimp gravy has a wonderful tangy taste with the flavors of drumsticks and eral combined together with light touch of coconut which is totally stunning and awesome. Rather than consuming the gravy immediately after cooking, it should be made to sit for at least two hours. The juice of the shrimp and drumsticks infuse really well by that time and it is lip smacking. Ok guys…

Here’s Eral murungakkai kuzhambu with step by step photos…


Ingredients

Shrimp
15 to 20 nos

For Tempering

Gingelly oil
2 tbsp

Method

Clean, wash and devein the shrimp. Wash it with ¼ tsp of turmeric powder. Extract the tamarind juice with about 1 cup of water and keep it aside. Grind the coconut to fine paste and keep it aside.


Heat the oil in a kadai splutter the mustard seeds, then add cumin seeds, methi seeds and curry leaves and sauté for 15 to 20 sec.

Add the onions, green chillies, garlic and sauté until golden brown.

Add the tomatoes and sauté until mushy, add the drumsticks and sauté for about 2 min. 


Add red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, salt and give a good stir, sprinkle some water. Cover and cook the drumsticks for about 5 min.


Now add the shrimp and mix well, let the shrimp cook in the masala for about 5 min. The masala will thicken and release oil.


At this point of time add the tamarind extract and let it simmer for 5 to 7 min. Add the ground coconut paste and boil for about 2 min. The oil starts to float on the gravy, this indicates the gravy is ready.


Switch off the stove, finally garnish it with cilantro and serve it with white rice.
