Prawn Curry

This is another classic recipe that has been on chow and chatter but its so easy to make and packs a spicy punch!


  • fresh or frozen prawn/shrimp (i call them prawns!)
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 small tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup frozen coconut
  • fish fry masala in Indian store to taste, about a tablespoon
  • curry leaves
  • green chilis or dried rice ones
  • ginger/garlic paste
  • pinch of chili powder

  1. heat canola oil, add onion, green chili and curry leaves, then add chili powder, and cook for a few minutes until the raw smell goes away
  2. add the chopped tomatoes, salt and fish fry masala and simmer for 15 minutes, until you get a nice gravy
  3. then add the shrimp/prawns, cover and simmer for another 5-10 minutes
  4. near the end add coconut
What's your favorite Curry?

  13. Curry is a culinary language to connect us over the world!! I love prawn of course, and beans curry is my family's regular too :)

    Curry and football... both are hot now ;)

  14. simple and nice! Perfect standby dish!

  15. I love curries, Rebecca, all kinds! Yours looks delish.

    Soccer is not something that interests me at all. I don't think we've ever had the interest in the U.S. that they do in Europe. Perhaps that is changing.
    Now football, that's a different thing! Love it!

  16. Rebecca, I've just recently found your site on Facebook and here. I listened to your radio program. I really enjoyed it. I love your accent. How many times have you heard people say that? I'm a fanatic when it comes to pictures. I love them. Is that your daughter in the pictures. She lovely. I've enjoyed seeing places that I'll never visit. Wow! What an opportunity. Finally, I'm looking forward to checking out your recipes. Sarah
