Save the day Shrimp

This is yet another recipe from Durga. Since I've already given an intro abt her in the Fish fingers recipe, let me move fwd with how she came up with this name. As in any cooking, she went wrong with her sidedish preparation one day and it was this easy-to-prepare shrimp recipe which saved her day :) Now u knw why itz called "Save-the-day" Shrimp :D Letz move on to the recipe, saying a quick thanks to her for sharing it...

  1. shrimp
  2. onions
  3. ginger(finely chopped)
  4. garlic(finely chopped)
  5. turmeric powder
  6. salt
  7. besan flour(adhan nambo kadalai maavu)
  8. rice flour(thamizhaakam- arisi maavu:)) 
  9. all purpose flour
  10. chilly powder
  11. kung pao stir fry sauce
  12. oil
  1. wash and devein shrimp.marinate with turmeric powder n salt.
  2. add besan flour,rice flour and all purpose flour about two teaspoons each(increase the quantity if you are making a large quantity of shrimp).
  3. now add a little salt n chilly powder to the shrimp batter mix and deep fry till golden brown.
  4. keep the deep fried shrimp aside .
