Keralan King Prawn Coconut Curry
This is a wonderfully fresh, creamy and perfectly spicy. It tastes totally amazing, it is full of protein and low in fat because I used light coconut milk. The added bonus is, it is super fast!
Juice of 1 Fresh Lemon
500g Raw Tiger Prawns, shells off and de-veined
2 tbsp Ground Nut Oil
1 Onion, finely chopped
1 tsp Turmeric
6 Green Cardamom Pods, give them a wee bang to split slightly
1 tsp Chilli Powder
1 Cinnamon stick
3 Cloves Garlic, crushed
3cm Root Ginger, finely grated
Tin of Light Coconut Milk
Maldon Sea Salt
Start by tossing the prawns in the lemon juice and set aside whilst you get on with the rest.
Heat a heavy based pan add a tablespoon of oil, add the onion and cook on a medium heat for around five mins, until softened but not coloured.
Add the Turmeric, cardamom pods and chilli powder. Cook for two mins until fragrant.
Add a dash more oil, throw in the Cinnamon, Ginger and garlic. Cook for a further 2 mins until cooked through.
Add the coconut milk and bring to the boil.
Season with salt.
At this point, throw in the prawns and cook for 2-3 mins until prawns are cooked through.
Serve with basmati rice and chopped fresh Coriander.
