Spicy Egg Noodles with Shrimp

I made these egg noodles and my son loved them. The next day he was complaining that I haven't made them for a long time.  So I've been wanting to make them for awhile but I haven't been able to find broad egg noodles.  I could only find extra broad which I think is too wide.  So this week I found some and decided I would make these noodles.  I make my own zeera dhania (cumin coriander) powder and keep it in my pantry.  I used a 1.5 dhania : 1 zeera ratio.  I dry roast the spices and then grind them up.  This is turned out really spicy.  I used 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper.  Next time I would reduce it to 1/4 tsp.  Less Shan Masala Seekh Kabob can also be added to reduce the spiciness.  This Masala pack is not on the website but you should be able find it in your Indian grocery store.
