Well, I have tried Chilli Chicken and Chilly Cauliflower/Gobi ample number of times but this time it’s Chilly Shrimp. As I had mentioned in my earlier post, I started making Spicy battered shrimps but before I could make the gravy for Chilly Shrimps, we finished half of the deep fried battered shrimps
With the remaining half, I continued making Chilly Shrimps.
Here is my recipe for Spicy Chilly Shrimps. This recipe has 2 parts:-
- The first part is making spicy deep fried battered shrimps.
- The second part involves making a Spicy Chilly Gravy and mixing the deep fired shrimps.

- The first part of the recipe involves preparing a spicy batter, dipping the shrimps in the batter and deep frying it. You can view the recipe for making Fried Shrimps here. Allow the fried shrimps to cool completely.
