Chingri baati chochchoree!

This has been a personal favorite for a long time. Really easy to make, and tasty to eat, this shrimp dish is very popular among bengalis. Whenever I find the ingredients necessary, I cook this, and trust me, it takes about 20 mins max!

Things that you will need:
Shrimps (kucho chingri) (500 gms)
1 big potato, cleaned, peeled and diced
almost half a cup of mustard oil (may need more)
1 tomato
2 green chilies, sliced
a pinch of turmeric
a pinch of salt
a pinch of sugar

how to do it:
Wash and devein the shrimps,smear salt and turmeric on them, keep them aside for a minute or two.
In a pressure cooker, pour all the ingredients.
Put the lid on and wait till it whistles 3 to 4 times.
It's that easy.

Or else, one can use a double boiler. That's why they call it "baati chochchoree"
One can also use a small bowl and seal it's cover with some flour dough and put it in the "bhaater hNaari".
