Shrimp Jalfrezi

I saw this recipe in one of the TV shows in Asianet on Chicken jalfrezi ,which I could successfully replace it with prawns/shrimp,otherwise the recipe remains the same.The best thing I liked about this recipe is that it has a balance of both veg and non veg in one recipe.The dish is a semi dry version without much gravy and spice.Also,the tomato is just added as a garnish at the end without any cooking.You can modify this recipe with your desired veggies and also try out a vegetable jalfrezi or a chicken jalfrezi too !!




Ingredients
prawns (large)1lb(1/2 kg)
mix vegetables (beans,carrot,corn,peas) 1cup (I used the mix veg frozen pack)
potato 1/3 cup cubed
onion 1 medium sliced
tomato 1 chopped (after removing the seeds and pulp)
cinnamon 1"size
ginger shredded 1 tsp
green chilli 2 round sliced
chilli powder 1/4 tsp
pepper powder 1/4 tsp
tomato ketchup 2 tsp
cilantro 5-6 sprigs chopped
salt
oil 3tsp



Method
-Add the prawns,and vegetables (beans,carrot,corn,peas and potato),cinnamon,shredded ginger1/2 tsp,salt and 1/2 cup water in a thick bottomed vessel and cook till done.(about 15 minutes)
-Heat oil in a non stick pan and add sliced onions.Saute till translucent,add remaining 1/2tsp ginger shredded and green chillies.Add turmeric powder.
-Add the chilli powder on low flame,pepper powder .
-Add the cooked vegetables and prawns and toss gently not to break and mash the veggies.
-Adjust salt and add half of cilantro.Add the tomato ketchup and put off flame.
-Now toss the ketchup with mix.Add in the chopped tomatoes just before serving.
-Garnish with cilantro & serve it with rice or chapathis!!


Servings ~3 adults

NOTES
* You can do the same with equal amount of chicken instead of prawns.
* You can also prepare a vegetable jalfrezi without non veg.
* Adjust the spice powders as per your tolerance.
