This recipe for Tomato & Shrimp Curry goes so well with basmati rice or Indian flat bread (naan or chapati).  Add a dollop of yogurt on the side too. And if you have it ready, some delicious coconut chutney to round out the flavor. 

If you have time, add a very simple salad to enjoy with the curry, like this Pineapple & Cucumber Salad.
