Shrimp Tikka Masala

Look at those little shrimp in their luscious sauce - just asking to be eaten!

Shrimp Tikka Masala
From Serious Eats

2 T. Oil
1 large Onion
3 T. grated Ginger
1 T. grated Garlic
2 T. Tomato Paste
2 t. Garam Masala
1/2 t. Chili Powder
1 C. Water
20 medium-to-large Shrimp
1/4 C. Sour Cream or Yogurt
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cooked Rice for serving

In a heavy pot, heat the oil over medium heat.  Add the onion and cook gently until golden, about 20 minutes, then add the ginger, garlic, tomato paste, chili powder, and garam masala.  Add a little oil if necessary to allow the ingredients to blend into a thick-yet-runny consistency, and cook until the flavors have begun to marry and are very fragrant, 3-4 minutes.

Add the water and stir until the mixture is smooth, and season to taste with salt and pepper.  Add the shrimp and cook gently over medium heat until they are just cooked through, about 4 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in the yogurt or sour cream quickly. Serve immediately with rice.
