    Family loved it, followed the suggestion on Mad Hungry to use green beans and really enjoyed how it came out. I seasoned the shrimp with salt/pepper/turmeric and it gave a nice color. Also served it with the coconut/cilantro chutney which was delish and made jasmine rice with coconut milk. Great recipe with great flavors!

    Five Star Recipe. Instead of ocra I used green beans. The prep was easy, the garlic/ginger paste didn't come together but I used it anyhow, it was fine. My family loved it. I served it over jasmine rice and with Naan which cut the heat a bit, because this is the first time I have ever cooked Indian food.

    Disappointing: the first bad recipe I've made from Martha's mag! The worst recipe I've cooked in some time. I've made many other Indian dishes that require more ingredients, with wonderful results. I thought this shrimp masala recipe could be a quick version. Sadly, the flavor of this dish is thin and unpleasant.
