Masala Jhinga

Masala Jhinga is an Indian dish that is a favorite among many Indians. The dish contains fried shrimps (or prawns) in an onion and tomato sauce seasoned with spices like cumin, garlic, ginger, turmeric, cloves, cardamom and chili peppers. The sauce also contains some sliced green chillies for added spice and flavor.

The ingredients for this dish vary depending on where it’s made, but most commonly include shrimp or prawns, onions, tomatoes, garlic, ginger, salt and cumin seeds.

This is one of the dishes that can be eaten every day!

If you want a saucy curry like consistency, add little bit more water. Serve with plain rice, roti, naan or jeera rice.
