If you haven’t noticed already, I’m quite partial to a good curry. However, I have never made or eaten a prawn curry… until now!

I have always loved prawns, and with my skill of cooking them – I thought I should try it. So, I did, and it was the best curry I have ever made.

And because it was so god damn good, we have a nice little recipe for ya. It takes around an hour in total, and only one pan is needed!

Here is what you’ll need to make two/three portions:

  • 500g of uncooked prawns – you can use any kind of prawn, I used king but some people may prefer jumbo or coldwater.
  • One fish stock pot – I bought mine from Tesco, you get a pack of four for a pound. It’s gluten and dairy free.
  • 3tbsp Cumin
  • 3tbsp Turmeric
  • 1/2tsp of ground ginger
  • Soy sauce (to your taste)
  • Sweet chili sauce (to your taste)
  • Black Pepper and Salt (to your taste)
  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Two bell peppers
  • Garlic (1-2 cloves)
  • 4 mushrooms
  • 200g of sliced onion
  • 150g of garden peas
  • 150ml of boiling water
  • 3tbsp Rapeseed Oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Lime juice
  • 4 cherry tomatoes
  • Stove
  • Pan
  • Heatproof jug

Let’s get started!

  1. Add the rapeseed oil to the pan, have the stove on medium heat. Add the onion and garden peas to the pan and leave to brown.
  2. Chop the mushrooms and put them in the pan. Add the soy sauce and some of the sweet chili sauce.
  3. Place the stock in the jug, add the cumin and turmeric then add the boiling water (from a kettle, preferably) to the jug.
  4. Once stirred, add to the pan.
  5. Chop the cherry tomatoes into four, add to the pan.
  6. Add the garlic, bell peppers, salt, pepper, and ginger to the pan.
  7. Leave to simmer.
  8. After 5 minutes, add the lemon and lime and the rest of the chili sauce.
  9. Add the prawns to the pan.
  10. Mix the prawns in so they soak up some of the juices for a few minutes and begin to curl.

Then serve! I served mine on a bed of rice, but you could have it on noodles or even with chips (fries).

So, I hope you enjoy it!

Take care!
