Simple Chingri Malai curry

Chingri malai curry is one of my favorite dish.I like spicy food, so I made changes to traditional version to make it spicy. This is a simpler version which uses ready made coconut milk as the coconut I bought turned out spoilt. I usually make the coconut milk myself and that recipe is slightly different than this.
