Indian Shrimp Curry

Indian Shrimp Curry

This dish takes a little effort, but once you taste it you won't mind a bit. This has been the traditional Christmas Eve meal in our family for 3 generations. The joy of this dish is the presentation of the condiments (from Mango Chutney to Avocados). We like to put each condiment in their own serving dish, arrange the dishes on a lazy susan in the center of table, and let your happy guests "build their own". Enjoy!

In a large saucepan, melt the butter, add the onion and cook on medium heat until soft. Add the flour and seasonings and stir for one minute.
