  1. A must try recipe.

  2. Interesting curry with shrimp balls inside. I am actually looking at frying the them and pairing with chili sauce. It should work besides adding into a thick and creamy curry like you have done.

    • Hai Nava Krishnan , thank You for stopping by …….. You can dip the Shrimp ball in Panko Bread Crumbs & deep fry the balls ……….then serve it as an appetizer ……. its really yummy !!!!!!! Let me know how it came …..
