You would find whole cumin seeds and roasted cumin powder in my kitchen any time of the year. The earthy aroma that cumin gives just so good. Cumin is widely used in Indian Cuisine. Whole cumin is used for tempering, while roasted powdered cumin is used in almost all types of curries and stir-fries. One of my favourite ways of using roasted cumin powder is to sprinkle on top of plain yoghurt.

 Easy Garlic Butter Shrimp and Vegetable Skillet

Let me walk you through the recipe really quick. Start with the freshest Shrimp. I like to keep the tail on because it looks pretty in Picture ;).  Ok, not exactly !! Keeping the tail on adds extra flavour to the dish, so It is up to you to decide. Add butter (lots of it..) to the hot skillet, along with little oil to prevent butter from burning. Add clean shrimp, saute for a couple of minutes.

Next, add garlic, spices. Mix well !! Then add peppers and zucchini.  Finish off the dish with a good squeeze of lemon and fresh parsley. Toss everything well.

And that’s IT. Your dinner loaded with flavour and texture is ready in no time.
