The recipe is very easy, you just need a good quality shrimp, some basic Indian Masala ingredients like onion, ginger+garlic, tomato, chilies and of course Vodka for this particular version.

You can use any brand of regular vodka but please don’t use flavored vodka.

We tend to make this one a tad spicier but you can go easy on spice or even completely omit it ….. just make this tangy tomato vodka sauce.


I hope you really enjoy this recipe with your loved ones or make a huge batch for your coming holiday party as this will definitely have everyone singing your culinary skills praises.
