 16 ounces shelled jumbo shrimp

¼ teaspoon turmeric

3 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil

¼ teaspoon salt

1-inch piece gingerroot, peeled and chopped

2 green chilies, chopped

1 onion chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

½ teaspoon ground coriander

2 tomatoes, chopped

½ ground cumin

2 teaspoon tomato paste

½ teaspoon paprika

2 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar

1 recipe quantity pooris

Place the shrimp in a large bowl and sprinkle the turmeric and salt over and put aside

Heat the oil in a saucepan or wok over medium heat.  Add the ginger, chilies, garlic, and onion and fry, stirring frequently, 6 to 8 minutes until onion is golden brown

Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, coriander, cumin and paprika. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer, stirring often 5 minutes, or until the sauce turns dark red.

Add the marinated shrimp and the vinegar and cook 3 minutes longer, or until the mixture becomes very thick and droplets of oil are visible on the surface.  Serve the shrimp mixture hot, allowing 2 pooris per person.  The pooris can be made several hours in advance, reheated and packed warm in a heated lunch tote for a hot lunch to go.
