Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Put the shrimp, onion, drumsticks, and asafoetida in a saucepan. Add a little water and cook until the shrimp and drumsticks are done. If using white fish instead of shrimp, then omit the shrimp at this stage.
  2. Grind the grated coconut, chile peppers, turmeric, pepper and tamarind to a fine paste. If needed, add a tiny amount of water to form a thick fine paste. Avoid watering down the paste as far as possible.
  3. Add to the shrimp mix and bring to a boil. If using white fish, add at this point.
  4. Add salt to taste.
  5. Serve with hot white rice.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • The traditional way of eating shrimp hooman is with hot steaming rice and raw mango pickle.
  • Alternatively the recipe can be made with any white fish (vellyo, muddashi, shevtali, visvaan).
  • If using frozen grated coconut, defrost it before use.
