Shrimp curry in 15 minutes with items from your pantry? Yes please! Life is busy, so sometimes it’s not always ideal to run to the grocery store to get fresh ingredients to make dinner. Having spices, canned tomatoes and fried onions on hand makes it easy to whip up something quick and delicious. Since shrimp is easy to thaw and quick to cook, it’s a staple in my freezer.
This is a quick way to make a tasty curry. I combine the tomatoes and spices together in a bowl and add the whole mixture to a hot pan. Add in some shrimp and you have a hot meal without calling for take out.
