Prawn and Potato Curry is a tasty delightful recipe. 


2 tbsp oil
1 large onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2cm ginger, chopped
3 large tomatoes, chopped
3 large kipfler potatoes, quarters
300g de-shelled prawns
3 tbsp curry powder
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp chilli powder
1 tsp paprika powder
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp turmeric
1 can light coconut milk
Juice from half a lemon
2 sprigs coriander, chopped
1 cup water
salt to taste

 Method :

  1. Heat oil in a pan in medium heat. Fry prawns till cooked.
  2. Remove cooked prawns and keep aside.
  3. Add oil in pan and heat it. Fry cumin for 1 minute then fry garlic till aromatic.
  4. Fry onions till transparent.
  5. Add in ginger and mix.
  6. Add curry powder, chilli powder, paprika powder, garam masala and turmeric.
  7. Add coconut milk and one cup of water and blend the mixture well.
  8. Add salt to taste.
  9. Add cooked prawns, potatoes and tomatoes.
  10. Let the curry simmer for 15 minutes.
  11. Add lemon juice and allow mixture to simmer on low heat for at least an hour.
  12. Add coriander before serving.     

Tip: Cook the potatoes in the microwave for 5 minutes to ensure the potatoes were soft enough after they were mixed in the simmered curry. This short-cut method works for stem vegetables in gravy that is not simmered for long hours and ensures that the vegetables are cooked just right at the time of being served.
