      Put the tomato paste in a bowl. Add the salt, sugar, garam masala, cumin, cayenne, cilantro, green chili, lemon juice, (if using dried curry leaves, add them at this point - fresh go in with the stir fry), and 1 T water.

      DH and I made this stir-fried shrimp dish for lunch today. We enjoyed it, but felt something was missing. I made no alterations to the recipe and even included the fresh curry leaves. I wonder if it is because I used lite unsweetened coconut milk---maybe it was supposed to be sweetened? The recipe did not state. Anyway, we did like the dish and thought it was really easy to prepare. We served it over jasmine rice.

      I left out the chile due to allergies, but used the larger amount of cayenne. The dish was unpleasantly hot - will use the lesser amount of cayenne next time. (DH is a chili-head, and even he also complained about the cayenne overpowering the other seasonings.)
