Konju-Theeyal--Shrimp-in-a-Spicy-Roasted-Coconut-Curry

This is a delicious, and quick curry, easy to assemble and full of taste.

I had the curry leaves in the freezer and I substituted the fresh coconut by dry one. After roasting the coconut with the spices I added water and blended it well. I blended it again after 5 minutes that the coconut adsorbed the water.

For decoration and little color I added a few halved cherry tomatoes just before serving!

Great recipe Parvathy
