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.
1/4 cup Vegetable or Soyabean oil
One handful Small Golda Chingri ( shrimp) without the head and tail cut
1 tablespoon Ginger paste
1 tablespoon Garlic paste
1 cup Sliced onions
As needed salt
6-7 Green chillies cut in half along the length
1/2 tablespoon Turmeric powder
1/2 tablespoon Red Chilli powder
1/2 kg Pui Shak ( Pui Spinach)
