Sukya Karandi(Sukat)chey Sukey
This is one of my favourite dishes since early childhood------each time it pours I get a craving for this---thanks to the Konkani blood inherited from my mother!!!!Unshelled pink coloured small shrimp is salted and dried in the open Air under the Sun from December onwards till crisp and dry.This is then stored in large Ceramic jars(Barnis) to protect it from Weather changes and keep it fresh.The desired quantity is removed,heads and tails discarded and this is cooked in a variety of ways with various Vegetables and by itself too----of all those styles, this simple way is the one I relish the most!!!
This Dried Shrimp is available in most Chinese Stores----both the unshelled and shelled varieties.
