Grind cashew in a mixer to a fine paste..keep it aside.
Heat oil in a kadai/pan and add jeera...wait for few seconds and add curry leaves + onion...fry till they are golden brown...next add ginger garlic paste and saute for minute and add the powders( turmeric, chilli and dhaniya)...mix well and add chopped tomatoes...fry till they are tender and pulpy...next add ground cashew paste along with a cup of water...also add shrimp + salt...let it cook till the raw smell leaves for 6 - 7 minutes...finally add pepper powder and chopped cilantro...since we get cooked shrimp here...that is why no need to cook for long time and adding it only in the end just to coat and absorb the masala.
