I love spicy food and I like trying new things. And I also like to eat healthy most of the time as it is a big part of being and feeling fit. This South Indian Coconut Shrimp Curry Recipe is excerpted from the cookbook 150 Best Indian, Asian, Carribean & More Diabetes Recipes by Sobia Khan, MSc, RD. The publisher granted permission to reprint it, so I decided to try it myself before sharing with you all!
