This easy but exotic tasting recipe is packed with flavor. Enjoy the heat of the dish without the heat of the kitchen. I like to think this fast food processor take on Indian cuisine is Dehlicious.



  • Drop garlic and ginger through feed tube of a food processor with motor running and process until finely chopped. Add onion and pulse until chopped.
  • Cook onion mixture in oil in a heavy12-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until just golden, about 5 minutes. Add spices and salt and cook, stirring, 1 minute longer.
  • Stir in tomato paste and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Then stir in water and bring to a simmer. Add shrimp and cook, covered, until shrimp are just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with lemon wedges and flatbread or over rice.
