- Make a fine paste using little water.
- If you are in a hurry, skip the process of making the paste and substitute the paste with its ingredients.
- This mixture can be refrigerated for 7-10 days. I normally make this paste with 3-4 big onions and freeze it in small containers.
- Peel and devein the shrimp. OR you can buy the raw peeled and deveined shrimp from the freezer section.
