Madhur's Shrimp in Mustard Seed and Green Chile Sauce
Gently rub the shrimp with 1/2 cup coarse salt. Wash shrimp under cold running water, and place in a colander. Drain well.Advertisement
Using a spice grinder, coarsely grind mustard seeds. Transfer ground seeds to a medium stainless-steel bowl. Add 1 tablespoon water, and combine. Add onion, chile, turmeric, remaining 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt, cayenne pepper, and oil. Add shrimp, and stir to coat. Cover the bowl with aluminum foil, and set seasoned shrimp aside for 10 minutes.
Place the bowl of shrimp in a large stockpot. Add boiling water to stockpot until water comes 1/3 of the way up the sides of bowl. Cover, and place over medium heat. Cook until shrimp just turn opaque all the way through, 10 to 15 minutes, stirring once after 6 minutes.
Divide the rice and shrimp among four plates, and serve.
