Thai Prawn Curry

Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15 Minutes
Servings: 4


Frozen prawns: 400 grams
Tomatoes: 400 grams
Thai red curry paste: 2 teaspoon
Onion: 1 medium size
Coconut cream: 50 grams
Chopped Ginger: 1 teaspoon
Vegetable oil: 2 tablespoon
Coriander leaves: a handful
Rice: 1 bowl

Method Of Preparation:

Step 1

Heat oil in a pan. Add one finely chopped medium sized onion. Stir well until it turns pink. Add a teaspoon of freshly chopped ginger. Cook for a few minutes until its raw smell disappears. Stir in some Thai red curry paste and cook for a minute or two, until the spices are thoroughly cooked.

Step 2

As the oil separates from the spice mixture, add the chopped tomatoes. Mix well and cook till it is mushy and soft. Stir well and add the coconut cream. Leave it to simmer for 5 minutes. Let it come to a boil. If the gravy looks very thick, adjust its consistency by adding some water.

Step 3

When the gravy cooks, add the prawns. Depending on the size of the prawns it will take somewhere between 5 and 10 minutes to cook them. If you have medium sized prawns, do not cook them for more than 5 to 6 minutes. Make sure not to overcook prawns or they will turn rubbery and chewy. Cover and cook the prawns in the gravy. Check whether the prawns are cooked well or not. Once done, sprinkle a handful of freshly chopped coriander leaves. Serve the prawn curry with a bowl of plain boiled rice.
