   Sprinkle shrimp with salt and turmeric. Toss well to coat; cover and
   set aside for 15 minutes. Combine mustard, cumin, garlic, ginger,
   chiles and lemon juice in a blender and puree. Set aside. Heat oil in
   a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook
   until soft, about 3 minutes. Add pureed spice mixture. Cook,
   stirring, until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato and cook
   until soft. Add shrimp, stir gently to coat them evenly. Pour in the
   water and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to
   medium, cover, and cook until shrimp are just opaque, about 5
   minutes. Mound rice into heated serving plates. Spoon curry over and
   serve. Note: Basmati rice has a distinctive nutty flavor. It is
   available at Indian, Middle Eastern, some specialty food stores and
   supermarkets.
