Shrimp Korma

Another yummy shrimp recipe with Indian Spices! This is more of a water down version of the Indian food I’m use to having at my husband’s families house but I figured it is coming from Cooking Light so I’m sure all the calories that normally goes into it was cut out or just watered down.  Regardless we both enjoyed it, my husband loved it and he finished up the leftovers too.  I opted to leave out the Basmati Rice to cut my calories further and to avoid the carbohydrates.  Definitely making this one again, but I think I will leave out the 1/3 cup water it says to add in there.

I don’t eat peas very often and I’m glad I finally made something with them in there as they are packed with iron!
