Cost per serving $1.09 view details
  • 500 grams tiger shrimp or prawns of your choice, shell and tail on, deveined
  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • Two and a half tablespoons yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 heaped tablespoon poppy / posto seeds
  • Half teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 4-5 green chilies (I used about six!)
  • 2-3 tablespoons mustard oil (No other cooking oil will work. Trust me.)
  • Salt


  1. Wash and clean the shrimps. In a grinder, make a course powder of the mustard and poppy seeds. Since the quantity is little, its best to do a dry powder first and then add half the quantity of the green chilies and wet grind with a little water. You can also add a little salt and the turmeric powder to this mixture.
  2. Now add the mustard-poppy seed mixture to the shrimps along with the yogurt and slit green chilies. Add salt (if needed) and drizzle the mustard oil all over the shrimp. Mix well.
  3. You can either steam this or cook this in the microwave for 10 minutes. Of course covered all the time.
  4. If you have a pressure cooker, put the shrimps and its sauce in a steel tiffin box, pour a little water at the base of the cooker and cook this till a whistle goes off.
  5. Else, you can put it in a microwaveable bowl, cover and cook for 10 minutes.
  6. There are no two ways of eating the Shōrsē Diye Chingri Maachh.
