About this recipe: My sister in law cooks pui shak with chingri in a slightly different way than my mom-she likes the dish a bit dry for which she uses the frying method, whereas my mom likes to have the dish with a lot of gravy and uses quite a bit of water. It is a very popular dish during the season when a lot of shrimps are available.
