Chingri Tetul Chutney Curry (Shrimp Tamarind Chutney Curry) by Yasmin Aunty

About this recipe: I could ask for nothing else when a dish has both of my favorite ingredients: tamarind chutney and shrimps. Pulao is something we all cook when we have guests coming over, and this sweet and sour dish is often cooked as it makes a great pair with it.
