Sweet and Sour Shrimps

Tomato sauce adds a kick in many dishes. It affects the kids by wanting them to eat it more. My daughters requested me to cook this today cause it's one of their favorite dish. Not only eating it while it's fresh, even heating it up in the microwave as leftovers it still has the same taste and it's delicious. My 2nd daughter is obsessed with this dish. After eating, she will lick all the sauce on her dish before putting it into the sink. Not only this dish, she licks all the sauce especially when i cook curry! She is a licker for all dishes with sauce. LOL
