Sukkile Sungata Kismuri - Dried Shrimp Mix - Shrimp Kosumburi

This dish is one of my personal favorites. This is so incredibly simple to make and fantastic to taste. This dish like very few other evokes the feelings of the sea to me. Incidentally, these sun dried shrimps impart a highly desired taste - umami - called as the 5th taste. What more can one ask for?

This dish is meant to be an accompaniment to (fish) curry and rice.
