Shrimp with Garam Masala Sauce

This is one of my favorite recipes. I got it from a gal I worked with a few years back. It is an authentic Indian recipe using aromatic spices of Indian curries. The spices blended together are: cumin, coriander, bay leaves, cardamon, black pepper, cloves and cinnamon. I love it with the shrimp but you can also use chicken breast cut into one inch strips.
My kids actually fight over this whenever we have it. My tough critic of a husband gives it an  8 on the taste scale of 1-10! Not a bad rating coming from him!!!


1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves minced
1 inch of fresh gingerroot, peeled and minced
1 tsp tumeric
1 1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2  large green pepper
15 1/2 oz can of dices tomatoes
slat to taste
a dash of cayenne
1lb of large shrimp, deveined and peeled
14 oz sour cream


Brown the first 5 ingredients in oil (Iuse olive oil). Sautee until the onions become transparent, about 4 minutes.

Then add the green peppers and tomatos and cook until you see the oil seperate from the mix in the pan.

Add the shrimp to the mix along with a small amount of water, about 1/2 cup. Cook until the shrimp turns pink and then add your sour cream and cook through about 3 minutes.

Add cayenne to the mix and salt to taste. Serve over rice with a garnish of cilantro.

...and see what your family's reaction will be!!

This earned a solid 8 on the old Chris taste scale!
