It’s cold and rainy and what could you want more than to cozy up on the couch with a delicious bowl of fragrant and spicy prawn curry. Full of flavour and packed with flavourful spices like cumin, coriander, cinnamon, cardamom and turmeric, this curry is not only aromatic but also wonderfully healthy. Adding curry leaves brings a signature South Indian flavour to the dish. The tanginess of tamarind and fresh lime mixes well with the creamy coconut sauce. Finally, the addition of fresh prawns lends a light touch to this curry and even makes it a good summer dish.
Additional garnishes like fresh coriander, cucumber slices, pappadums and steamed basmati rice make this a complete meal. Try out my recipe for this fragrant prawn curry tonight!
