  • Leftovers may be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • If using frozen shrimps, defrost them first.
  • Feel free to add a pinch of chili powder if you want a spicy kick.
  • I served this curry with some cauliflower “rice” but feel free to have it with cooked brown rice, white rice, or bread with a side of vegetables for a balanced meal!
