Mozambique Fiery Shrimp Curry
(Peri Peri Kari)



Indian-style Peri Peri Sauce

Julie Sahni's Homemade Curry Powder


  1. Shrimp: In a bowl, toss the shrimp with curry powder and lemon juice and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large sauté pan over high heat until hot. Add the garlic and the shrimp, toss and stir until they turn pink and cut up, about 2 minutes. Remove the shrimp into a bowl.
  3. Add the remaining butter to the pan along with the onions. Reduce the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring, until the onions are soft and begin to brown, about 4 minutes. Stir in the peri-peri paste, tomatoes, lemon thyme, parsley, paprika and the broth. Cook until the tomatoes are soft and the sauce has thickened, about 3 minutes.
  4. Return the shrimp to the sauce and cook until the contents are heated through. Check the seasoning and add salt to taste.
  5. Serve over plain cooked rice.
  6. Indian-style Peri Peri Sauce: Combine all the ingredients in a blender or a food processor and process until the chiles are finely minced to a paste. If you are using the cumin seeds, it will not be completely ground which is perfectly acceptable.
  7. Julie Sahni's Homemade Curry Powder: Combine coriander, cumin, mustard, fenugreek, peppercorn, cardamom, chile, cinnamon, fennel, clove, and celery seeds in an unseasoned frying pan. Roast the spices over medium-high heat, stirring, until they are lightly colored, about 5 minutes.
  8. Remove and cool spice-mixture before grinding into a powder in a coffee grinder.
  9. Transfer the curry powder into a jar, cover tightly and store in a cool dark place.

Serves 4.
