Add sugar and curry powder, whisking until well mixed.

Stir in vegetables and shrimp and let simmer until veggies are slightly tender and the shrimp are cooked. The shrimp will turn pink and curl up when they are finished. Top with sesame seeds

    This is such a wonderful and flexible recipe! It's fabulous with just the veggies in the sauce, or with tofu or chicken added instead of shrimp. My daughter said she could eat it three times per day! It's been wonderful on brown rice and red quinoa! This is also easy to prepare! - 3/7/11

    Tried this with a few alterations for my bf who is on a special diet (The Specific Carbohydrate Diet).. we used honey instead of sugar and left out the hoisin sauce and the sesame seeds. He liked it a lot and I tried a shrimp - it was great. :) - 12/4/10
