"My Indian mother-in-law's recipe. It is my favorite way to eat shrimp now. The spice measurements are approximate because of course she doesn't measure, so adjust to your liking. Indians will also make this dish with potatoes (which need to be boiled ahead) or cauliflower instead of green pepper. It would work with just about any veggie you like with shrimp." — rubiabecka

I made this recipe for dinner tonite, and it was fabulous! I did some minor changes; minced up some fresh garlic and ginger while mincing the onion. Also I used Garam Masala instead of the individual spices (cumin and turmeric). A little more water for the sauce. Served over basmati brown rice....yummy....!!
If you have to cook the shrimp that long it will end up tough and dry. The shrimp should be added when the liquid is almost dried out.
