Shrimp curry is a dish in which you must have an acquired taste. Any size shrimp can be used for this dish. Smaller shrimp are alot less expensive but the taste is the same. There are several ways to prepare shrimp curry. The ingredients are usually the same but depending on where it’s being prepared a few ingredients will either be substituted for or omitted from the dish completely. Some of the ingredients in this recipe may seem a bit odd but it’s actually tasty. Chopped bananas are recommended in this recipe but it is also common to use raisins, chopped cucumbers, mango or pineapple chutney, and shredded coconut. Odd as it may sound some people even use Fried onion rings. The following recipe is how shrimp curry is prepared in East Africa.
