When it is cooked for 2 to 3 minutes, add the minced garlic, cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. When all  the vegetables start forming a greasy crust , add the browned flour. Over medium heat cook it for a minute by continuous stirring. Now, add half of the stock , keep stirring, let all the flavors blend together. Next, add rest of the stock, and let simmer on low flame for 20 to 25 minutes or until you get a semi-gravy like consistency.   Lastly, add the shrimps to the gravy, cook for another 5 minutes.
